The Importance of Cooling Concrete Temperatures

The concrete curing process, which contains five phases, is designed to maintain appropriate moisture content and temperature levels in early-age concrete so it can reach its specific mix strength. Why is achieving the right amount of moisture so important during this process? Because hydration tends to dry out the concrete due to the loss of heat. Interested in SmartRock? Try for Free, No Risk! Free Sensor* Free Shipping No Strings Attached Get Your Trial Kit *For eligible new customers in North America only Furthermore, in order to guarantee the strength and quality of a concrete pour, it must undergo cooling to reduce its temperature. A concrete pour generates an appreciable amount of heat (i.e. it creates an exothermic reaction), which raises the overall temperature of the element. Generally speaking, the greater the concrete content, the higher the temperature will be….

The Ins-and-Outs of Early-Age Strength of Concrete

One thing we are sure you know at this point is that concrete is one of the most widespread building materials in the world. By now you should be no stranger to concrete testing and the common challenges it poses on construction sites. In order to assure the structural integrity of your concrete, testing is involved from before the mix is designed to the form removal and beyond. It’s especially important during the beginning stages of curing. Testing during this stage is called early-age strength testing, or early-age strength evaluation. Interested in SmartRock?

The Importance of Concrete Temperature Gradients

Minimizing the risk of cracking is critical for maintaining the structural integrity and increasing the service life of a concrete structure. This is an important consideration in all construction projects, but it’s especially critical in those that require the use of mass concrete, such as bridges, buildings, structural columns, and roads. Interested in SmartRock? Try for Free, No Risk! Free Sensor* Free Shipping No Strings Attached Get Your Trial Kit *For eligible new customers in North America only One activity that helps engineers, contractors, and project managers minimize cracking in mass concrete is measuring its concrete temperature gradient (or temperature differential). This specification is the difference between the temperature of the core and the exterior of a mass concrete element. The higher the concrete temperature gradient, the more the structural integrity and service life of a concrete structure are jeopardized….

Relationship Between Concrete Curing, Concrete Temperature, and Concrete Strength

Although concrete curing, concrete temperature, and concrete strength are three different things with three different meanings, they are not independent of one another. There is a close-knit relationship between these aspects of concrete curing and each facet plays a significant role in the overall strength and integrity of your concrete structure. Interested in SmartRock? Try for Free, No Risk! Free Sensor* Free Shipping No Strings Attached Get Your Trial Kit *For eligible new customers in North America only What is Concrete Curing? According to a report by ACI Committee 308, the American Concrete Institute defines “curing” as of “the process by which hydraulic-cement concrete matures and develops hardened properties over time.” All concrete mixes technically cure in different lengths of time and to different levels of maturity. That being said, curing time and strength can be controlled not only by…

Maturity vs. Pull-Out: Which Concrete Testing Method Should You Choose?

When it comes to testing compressive concrete strength, there are several methods to choose from. Field-cured cylinder testing is the most common method utilized for monitoring concrete strength on construction sites. For the most part, it has remained unchanged since its introduction in the early 19th century. However, its longevity doesn’t necessarily mean it’s the best technique to employ as it takes more time than others to complete and involves destroying concrete samples. Interested in SmartRock?

Essential Tips for Heating Concrete in the Winter

As extreme weather conditions in the winter arrive, construction companies need to be prepared to face the possible problems that could arrive. To prevent issues such as project delays when it comes to heating concrete in winter, contractors must be educated to adapt to cold weather concreting. Each phase of the concreting process must be evaluated from planning, pouring, and curing to adapt and add practices/measures to avoid freezing of the concrete.  1. Planning & Preparation Before placing concrete, a few particular practices should be considered to allow proper curing of the concrete.   You need to assess the construction site and determine the forms and testing involved.  Quality of concrete mix is essential to maintain proper temperature and strength throughout.  Preheating one or more of the constituent materials of the mix can ensure that the proper concrete temperature is present…

Are There Standards for Concrete Maturity in Your Country or State?

No matter where you are in the world, the ability to accurately measure the early age compressive strength of concrete is vital for a wide spectrum of construction projects. Concrete maturity directly affects the structural integrity and safety standards of job sites as well as the speed at which a project can be completed, all of which also impact economic considerations. The more accurately and quickly in-situ compressive strength can be measured, the better contractors and engineers can optimize critical activities such as formwork removal, opening roads to traffic and many more.

The Future of Smart Cement

Cement is a binding material that has contributed to the creation of historical monuments, but as we shift from 3000 BC into the twenty-first century, we can see the multitude of ways in which cement is being used. Today, the main ingredient in concrete is Portland cement, which is often mixed with other materials to enhance it. This process creates what is now called blended cement which may include fly ash, volcanic ash, and granulated slag. These added agents serve to increase durability and reduce heat generation during the curing process. According to a study, concrete is the second most used material after water, and although it seems like a well-established product, there is still a lot of room for improvement. Researches today are pushing the boundaries and creating new solutions for the construction industry. One of the ways they…

A New Technique for Rebar Corrosion Rate Measurement in Concrete

Corrosion of Steel in Concrete Corrosion is initiated when materials that are harmful to steel, such as CO2 and chloride from de-icing salt, start to penetrate concrete and reach the steel reinforcement. As an electrochemical reaction, electrons migrate from the anodic zone to the cathodic zone, releasing ferrous ions at the anode and hydroxide ions at the cathode. This will eventually lead to a potential difference between the anodic and cathodic areas at the surface of the steel reinforcement. This results in the creation of rust as a by product. Since rust occupies a larger volume than steel, it exerts internal pressure which causes the surrounding concrete to crack and become damaged. These cracks make their way to the surface of the concrete which causes even more CO2 and chloride to penetrate the concrete and speed up the process of…

Relating the Electrical Resistance of Fresh Concrete to Mixture Proportions

Giatec would like to congratulate Karthik Obla, Rongjin Hong, and Stuart Sherman of the National Ready Mixed Concrete Association and Dale P. Bentz and Scott Z. Jones, members of the National Institute of Standards and Technology for receiving ASTM International’s Advances in Civil Engineering Materials’ Outstanding Article Award for their paper “Relating the Electrical Resistance of Fresh Concrete to Mixture Proportions”! Abstract Characterization of fresh concrete is critical for assuring the quality of our nation’s constructed infrastructure. While fresh concrete arriving at a job site in a ready-mixed concrete truck is typically characterized by measuring temperature, slump, unit weight, and air content, here the measurement of the electrical resistance of a freshly cast cylinder of concrete is investigated as a means of assessing mixture proportions, specifically cement and water contents. Both cement and water contents influence the measured electrical resistance…

Concrete Mix Design Just Got Easier

A concrete mix is a combination of five major elements in various proportions: cement, water, coarse aggregates, fine aggregates (i.e. sand), and air. Additional elements such as pozzolanic materials and chemical admixtures can also be incorporated into the mix to give it certain desirable properties. While a concrete mix design is a process of selecting ingredients for a concrete mixture and deciding on their proportions. When designing a mix, you should always consider the desired strength, durability, and workability of the concrete for the project in question. Needless to say, all ready-mix producers strive to find the perfect proportions of these ingredients in order to optimize their concrete mixes and give their concrete strength, durability, workability, and other desirable properties. It’s important to optimize concrete to ensure the lowest cost while maintaining the highest strength of your mixture. This is…

What Contractors Need to Know About Field Testing Concrete

A shortage of skilled labor continues to be the dominate issue in the construction industry, and rightfully so. However, delays in construction schedules have always been a thorn in the side of contractors, and history shows that probably won’t change. The success of any construction project—single family home, school, hospital, stadium, restaurant—is predicated on preventing problems that cause costly delays. While there are many factors that can disrupt a schedule, few are more detrimental than problems with the quality of concrete on a job. Best case scenario, the project will be temporarily halted until test results are validated. Worst case scenario, the original work will be removed and redone. Either way, bad news for project efficiency, quality, and profitability. Fortunately, unlike unpredictable weather, project delays can be avoided by correctly field testing concrete products using appropriate methods and procedures. Whether…

Debating Field-Cured Concrete Cylinder Testing

On any job site, the strength of a concrete pour is a critical piece of information. Concrete cylinder breaks have been the pillar for compression strength testing in the construction industry for more than 180 years (Concrete Network). How are Concrete Cylinder Break Tests Done in Third-party Labs? There are two types of specimen that field technicians collect to test the strength of concrete (in accordance with ASTM C31): Standard-Cured Cylinders Field-Cured Cylinders As the name suggests, field-cured cylinders are subject to the same temperature and relative humidity levels that the completed structure will actually experience in its environment. Unlike standard-cured cylinders, field-cured specimens are kept right beside the concrete slabs on site. They are predominantly used for determining whether a structure is ready for critical operations like removing formwork, tensioning, and road openings. In standard or lab curing, concrete…

Improve Productivity with Wireless Concrete SmartRock® Plus Sensors

If you’ve already looked at our SmartRock® Plus product page, then you know that this program helps ready-mix producers differentiate their company, and mixes, within the market. But this value-added solution also provides project managers and contractors with an opportunity to significantly speed up their timelines, helping improve productivity on site. How you may ask? By offering you an opportunity to reduce your reliance on third-party labs for compressive strength testing and instead make the switch to wireless maturity sensors. As you probably already know, most jobsites use cylinder break tests to measure the compressive strength of concrete. However, this process is not only outdated, it is also very inefficient for keeping your project schedule on track. For this reason, more and more project managers are turning to wireless maturity sensors to monitor concrete strength directly on site. A very…

Improving Product Efficiency with Advanced Concrete Testing Technology

When monitoring the strength of in-situ concrete, the most common method that is used today is field-cured cylinders. This practice has remained largely unchanged since the early 19th century. These samples are casted and cured according to ASTM C31 Standard Practice for Making and Curing Concrete Test Specimens in the Field and tested for compressive strength by a third-party lab at various stages. Knowing the rate at which your in-situ concrete is gaining strength informs you about when you can move to the next stage of your project. Usually, if field-cured specimens have reached 75% of its designed strength, engineers will give the ‘go ahead’ to their team to move on to these next stages s in the construction process, such as post-tensioning or removing formwork. Unfortunately, field-cured cylinders are prone to inaccuracies. In particular, it is very difficult to…
