Introducing new technology and software into the construction industry has increasingly been a focus in recent years. This software can involve processing large amounts of data on numerous onsite activities, such as project scheduling, budget management, and more. Kickstarting this integration process is no easy task, especially when it requires convincing everyone involved in a project, or even an entire organization, to “go digital”.

Often, an unwillingness to alter your day-to-day work schedule is the result of a lack of trust in these tools. Despite that, these software programs allow companies to embrace a “data-driven working approach”, helping regain control over project workflows, see an increase in productivity, and fewer delays.

One such software program is our Giatec 360 cloud dashboard. As the world’s most advanced platform for controlling and predicting the quality of concrete pours, this platform introduces you to the next level in user management capabilities and data analytics for your SmartRock® wireless sensors.

This includes the ability to:

  • Manage user access levels according to project
  • Assign role-based access to data
  • View user activity logs and connected devices
  • Measure real-time concrete strength and strength prediction
  • Plot temperature gradient data between multiple sensors
  • Create, edit, and analyze your mix calibration data
  • Set up temperature and strength thresholds for your pours
  • Generate sensor and sectional PDF/CSV reports for distribution
  • And all upcoming features!

The Importance of Monitoring Temperature Differentials in Mass Concrete

Closely monitoring concrete temperatures is critical for ensuring proper strength development of concrete structures, regardless of their application or size. However, when it comes to mass concrete structures, temperature differentials also need to be considered due to the risk of a large difference between the relatively hot internal temperature and cool surface temperature. If a too-large temperature differential occurs, the surface of mass concrete will start cracking, which is detrimental to its…

Rebound Hammer vs. The Maturity Method: Which Should You Choose?

Schmidt/Rebound Hammer Method The concrete rebound hammer test (often referred to as Schmidt Hammer) was invented in 1948 and is still a popular choice to test the compressive strength of concrete. To use this method, the rebound hammer must first be calibrated against a steel test anvil. Once calibrated, a spring release mechanism is used to activate a hammer which impacts a plunger to drive into the surface of the concrete. After…
