Co-located with Intermat, World of Concrete Europe is a valuable platform that brings together key players from the European concrete industry. It’s where manufacturers, specifiers, and end users of concrete can exchange knowledge and gain inspiration from each other. For us, it’s a great way to gain perspective of where the European concrete industry is at and where it’s headed.

Concrete Demos

Intermat Paris is the only international exhibition that has an outdoor area where construction companies can show their equipment and machinery in action. The great thing about these live demonstrations is that you can witness the performance of these products in real-life jobsite conditions. It’s sure to be a main attraction.

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…

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…
