Abstract:

The use of sensors in concrete to measure and monitor its physical characteristics is becoming more widespread in construction. The real time data collected can improve the quality and safety of structures and give us the ability to act quickly to mitigate potential quality issues and progress with construction schedules. Temperature monitoring can be used in two distinct applications: Thermal Monitoring of mass concrete and Strength Tracking for concrete curing decision making. Both applications, along with recent project examples will be discussed in this presentation.

Presenters:

Siobhán Sawyer, VP Field Technical Services and Trey Triplett, Field Technical Sales Specialist
