Concrete test

ProCAAT is a tool for the life-cycle analysis of reinforced concrete structural elements subjected to chloride penetration. The software features a user-friendly interface based on MS Excel, while behind the scenes the computational engine leverages compiled Matlab code and Visual Basic. A step-by-step tutorial is also available.

How to cite

A publication describing ProCAAT is currently in preparation. At the moment, the best way to cite ProCAAT is to refer to a report of the ATLSS Engineering Research Center describing an older version of the tool (called ProCIM).

New version of the tutorial, with updated ProCAAT screenshots available here.


At this stage, ProCAAT is provided as a Beta version. No support is provided, and no official manual, but only a comprehensive tutorial, downloadable from the link above. More information on its underlying models can be found in the cited papers.

ProCAAT is still under development and the Authors take no responsibility for the results that it will provide, nor for data loss or other types of damage that it might accidentally cause.

Users' feedback is extremely valuable to us. Feel free to contact us for questions, suggestions and to report bugs.


ProCAAT combines MS Excel, Visual Basic, and Matlab. You can launch it as a native app in Windows, or you can open directly the Excel spreadsheet where the input should be provided.

ProCAAT can be downloaded and used for free, but you will need a license to run it. In this page you can download the package and ask for the free license.
