Giatec launches AI-powered tool to optimize concrete mix design

Concrete technology firm Giatec is turning to artificial intelligence (AI) to help producers and contractors optimize their concrete mixes.

The Ottawa-based firm, which makes concrete sensors, among other testing technology, has introduced SmartMix, a web-based AI tool that will fine-tune concrete ingredient proportions and reduce cement usage, while still allowing mixes to meet project specifications.

Giatec says the new tool, the first of its kind, takes advantage of millions of data points it’s collected from projects its sensors are in use on around the world, and builds on another of its software programs known as Roxi. By helping contractors design optimized mixes, with precise admixture and cement content, the company says the tool could also help lower greenhouse gas emissions tied to concrete production by hundreds of millions of tons annually.

Giatec’s Thermal Modeling feature on the Giatec 360 platform was developed to help predict the maximum concrete temperature and temperature differential of mass concrete. Thermal Modeling is a comprehensive solution for engineers, general contractors, and ready-mix producers. The feature allows users with mass concrete elements to experiment with different inputs and produce forecast scenarios outlining the anticipated behavior of the concrete temperature at various depths. User-friendly and intuitive, it was built with customers in mind and intended to work independently of SmartRock sensors. Thermal Modeling requires…
