Zahn cup—an apparatus for the measurement of liquid or slurry viscosity expressed as the number of seconds required for the liquid or slurry to drain from the cup through a hole of definite diameter.
zinc-rich primer—a primer that contains a high enough concentration of zinc dust to make it electrically conductive when it dries so that it provides cathodic protection for ferrous materials.
zone, anchorage—in post-tensioning, the region adjacent to the anchorage subjected to secondary stresses resulting from the distribution of the prestressing force; in pretensioning, the region in which the transfer bond stresses are developed.
zone, precompressed—the area of a flexural member that is compressed by the prestressing tendons.
Giatec is driving breakthrough innovations in the concrete industry, bringing real-time data on concrete performance to the forefront of every construction jobsite. Their suite of hardware and software products, including non-destructive testing technologies, IoT solutions, and wireless sensors, analyze data throughout concrete’s lifecycle, helping to build structures faster, safer, and more economically.
Combining wireless concrete sensors and mobile apps, Giatec has developed smart IoT-based technologies, like SmartRock™ concrete maturity sensors, for real-time monitoring of concrete properties. This provides critical information to contractors so they can make efficient and informed decisions on the jobsite, ultimately saving time and money. Ready-mix producers also leverage the SmartRock™ Plus cloud, which gives them access to concrete performance data to optimize their mix designs. Learn More
