Differentiating Inert and Reactive Pozzolanic Materials using Bulk Resistivity

Research Background  Portland cement is often replaced by supplementary cementitious materials (SCMs) in concrete to increase sustainability (reducing CO2 emissions due to lower cement contents) and durability (mitigation of alkali-silica reaction, reduced sulfate attack, and reduced chloride penetration). Fly ash and natural pozzolans are specified using ASTM C618/AASHTO M295, and an important part of this specification is the strength activity index test (SAI), which dictates that a mortar mixture with 20% SCM replacement should reach at least 75% strength of the control mixture at either 7- or 28-days. The SAI is a potentially flawed test as inert materials are known to be able to pass the test. The early testing age, low SCM replacement…

Choosing the Right Concrete Thermocouple for Your Jobsite

What Is a Concrete Thermocouple?  In layman’s terms, a thermocouple is an electric device that measures temperature, essentially making it a type of thermometer. That being said, it is not the kind of thermometer you would use to measure your body temperature when running a fever, or to deduce what the atmospheric weather is today, or as an in-built mechanism within your refrigerators and heaters. So, what exactly sets a concrete thermometer apart?  It takes two metals to form a thermocouple, both of which are wires that are welded, crimped, or twisted together, and It takes two metals to form a thermocouple, both of which are…
