The prediction results of high-performance concrete compressive strength (HPCCS) based on machine learning methods are seriously influenced by input variables and model parameters. This study proposes a method with two stages to select proper variables, simplify parameter settings, and predict HPCCS. The appropriate variables are selected in the first stage by measuring their importance based on random forest, and then are optimized to predict HPCCS in the second stage. The results show that the proposed method was effective for input variable optimization, and could return better predictions than that without variable optimization, provided that the parameters are set within a reasonable range. Compared with previous models, the proposed method shows a strong generalization capacity for HPCCS prediction. We find that the prediction performance of the model is better when the input variables are expressed as absolute mass, and the model performers well when the actual compressive strength of HPC is high.
