Optimizing Concrete Operations: Is Interoperability the Key?

In the effort of optimizing concrete operations from design to pouring, the industry struggles with a pervasive challenge: the existence of data silos. Data in concrete operations often resides in closed systems, scattered across various platforms, lacking integration for efficient decision-making. This lack of interoperability hinders operational efficiency, and most importantly stifles innovation in an already lagging industry. Addressing this challenge requires an industry-wide effort to unify disparate data sources into an open system, enhancing insights and decision-making. With the industry gradually moving towards technological advancement, now it is more crucial than ever to prioritize interoperability. However, there are obstacles in the journey towards achieving this interoperable ecosystem, including technological barriers, preference for tradition, and lack of awareness on the transformative potential of data integration.  Closed Systems Vs. Open Systems Closed systems are traditional, siloed approaches where information and processes are confined within a single entity or limited group of stakeholders. In concrete operations, this often translates to rigid project management methods, proprietary software solutions, and hierarchical organizational structures. While closed systems may offer a sense of control and familiarity, they have significant limitations in today’s rapidly evolving landscape. In contrast, open systems embrace interoperability, collaboration, and transparency as core principles. They…

Understanding the Challenges of the Maximum Temperature of Concrete in Mass Elements

As mass concrete is now an essential part of the construction industry, it is important to consider the different factors that affect its quality and strength gain. When designing and monitoring a mass concrete mix, contractors must take special consideration to the maximum temperature that the mass element concrete will be subjected to. The maximum temperature of concrete is typically in the core of the mass element. However, in insulated thinner elements this could occur near the insulated surface. Moreover, for regular mass placements, the peak will typically be reached within the first 48 hours after the pour. Although, this could vary according to the size and placement schedule. The maximum concrete temperature corresponds to the concrete temperature placement in addition to the heat rise. In this blog, we will learn about other temperature-related challenges when working on mass concrete.Be fully prepared for your next mass concrete project!What Is Delayed Ettringite Formation (DEF)?The main concern surrounding the allowable maximum temperature of concrete is the issue of delayed ettringite formation, typically referred to as DEF. As ettringite has limited temperature stability, it does not form at high temperatures. This is an issue when concrete reaches high temperatures. Furthermore, when high heat generation occurs…

Artificial Intelligence in Concrete

Artificial Intelligence in Concrete: Buzzword or Buzzworthy? 

The concept of artificial intelligence in concrete is frequently discussed, yet its practical application and effectiveness remain elusive. Despite the buzz, there seems to be a lack of understanding of what industry challenges can be solved with artificial intelligence and how. Hence, there is a need to shed light on its practical implications, bridging the gap between theoretical concepts and tangible solutions. As a pioneer in artificial intelligence in concrete, Giatec® interviewed quality control professionals from over 20 companies throughout North America. The purpose was to identify primary challenges impacting their businesses and areas where artificial intelligence could effectively apply. The interviews revealed four key issues consistently present across companies of all sizes and market demands: Understanding these challenges better, it became evident that they all converge into a central issue: overdesign. Rooted in a complex interplay of industry dynamics, overdesign leads to excessive material usage, increased costs, and environmental waste. Moreover, it contributes to inefficiencies in concrete production, hindering progress toward sustainability goals and impeding overall industry advancement.   Tackling overdesign is essential not only for cost reduction and resource conservation but also for driving innovation and competitiveness in the concrete industry.  This is where Roxi™ and Giatec’s SmartMix™ come in; offering…
