The 90 experimental data samples previously validated in the current literature regarding the compressive strength of mortars have been collected and evaluated to develop the practical soft-computing model which is presented in this study for prediction of the compressive strength of mortars with blended cements. The presented model provides many economical, technical and environmental benefits to be swiftly implemented into the practice. It is formulated based on the soft-computing techniques of genetic expression programming (GEP) by considering the model factors including as specific weight and surface of cement, water/cement ratio, testing age, the amounts of clinker, limestone, pozzolana and gypsum. Paper explains the validity of the presented model with that randomly selected experimental sub datasets available in the current literature. The findings illustrate that the presented GEP model has a favorable potential for estimating the compressive strength of mortars with blended cements.
