WHAT IS CONCRETE MATURITY

Concrete maturity is a practical, proven, recognized method of more accurately predicting the in-place strength and other characteristics of concrete based on its age and temperature history (maturity).

Concrete maturity is not a new concept in fact it was developed more than 50 years ago and is highly recognized and well accepted, amongst concrete and construction professionals.

Standard practice are  in place in a number of counties including USA ASTM C1074-11 Standard Practice for Estimating Concrete Strength by the Maturity Method, Netherlands (NEN 5970:2001) for estimating in-place concrete strength using the maturity method.

Understanding and monitoring the Maturity of Concrete allows the achievement of numerous significant benefits across the range of sectors in the construction industry.  The full potential of these benefits for example being able to strip form-work or post tension earlier are at their greatest as soon as the required maturity is achieved.  Assessing strength using conventional test specimens (cylinders or cubes), means you may be using non representative strength information which is likely to be received well after the element is ready as in most cases testing can only be conducted during test laboratory operating hours.

To maximise the potential benefits requires Accurate, Reliable information in real time which can be used with confidence to manage and estimate in-place performance of concrete at  Early Age, thereby ensuring that Appropriate Actions can to be taken at the Right Time with Confidence

HOW CONCRETE MATURITY WORKS

  • The maturity concept uses the principle that concrete strength is directly related to its maturity which is a function of both age and temperature history.
  • The maturity method is a technique used to predict the in-place concrete compressive and flexual strengths at early ages (up to 14 days) based on the temperature history of the concrete.
  • Strength increases as cement hydrates, the amount of cement hydration depends on the length of time the concrete has cured and at what temperature. Maturity is a measure of how far hydration has progressed.
  • There are two methods used to calculate Concrete Maturity

HOW CONXEDGE WORKS

  • Facilitates the establishment of the relationship between strength and maturity and stores these against relevant products
  • System Interprets data using Concrete Maturity (Arrhenius or Nurse Saul)
  • Enables targets (Maturity Index’s associated to particular strengths, etc,) to be setup by application or requirements
  • Allows the most commonly used targets to be set as defaults for ease of use
  • Key inputs for maturity formulas are configurable and stored by groups of products to maximise accuracy
  • Set up and maintain key-master data in the system for example customers, projects, users, pours.
  • Enables pours consisting of one or many measuring locations, to be set up and monitored.
  • Current pours are displayed on the Customers Control Panel (default screen at log in).
  • Set and Forget system Notifies users in Real time when targets are achieved and/or alerts are triggered.
  • ConXedge allows the Management of performance from anywhere using PC’s, Tablet’s or Smart Phone’s – No Need to Retrieve Data from Site, interpret and report information.
  • Real Time Management at a glance with powerful KPI  Dashboards and Graphs.
  • Complete Traceability and Auditability of all Events and Notification,
  • Complete real time and historical Traceability and Auditability, all pour data, records of notifications and alerts available to Authorised Customer Users and can be exported to MS Excel.
  • On completion of the monitoring System generated Compliance Reports can be produced
  • Full access to historical pour information and data
  • System Interprets data using Concrete Maturity (Arrhenius or Nurse Saul)
  • Configure Pours, Notification and Warning Parameters

 

Accurate and Relevant Real Time information Maximises the potential Benefits of Concrete Maturity, with Minimal effort and ensures that appropriate decisions be taken and actions implemented at the right time.
