Applications

Gaining insights into the concrete curing status is valuable for every construction project. Monitoring temperature and strength development and relative humidity enable process optimisation as redundant curing or drying time can be reduced.

Infrastructure project

Infrastructure projects have tight schedules and are planned years upfront. Keeping an overview of the often simultaneous casts and the micromanagement on-site are challenges.

Using a digital concrete monitoring tool such as Maturix for infrastructure projects reduces redundant waiting time while ensuring excellent product quality and that the required strength has been reached on-site.

How?

By using intelligent wireless sensors monitoring in critical positions, the curing process of the cast can be measured, followed, monitored and thus optimised.

The system provides real-time insights into concrete temperature, maturity and strength development. The schedule can be optimised based on this data, cutting redundant curing time.

Extensive infrastructure projects have tight pre-defined schedules. With Maturix, the project is optimised based on real-time data from the site to save time and money.

High-rise buildings

Monitoring and controlling the strength development for foundations and floors enable a faster, safer and more efficient workflow.

Based on data, the optimal time to remove the formwork is determined, and micromanagement onsite can align with the concrete status.

How?

Temperature is measured directly inside the structure using a thermocouple connected to a transmitter. The Maturix transmitter sends the data wirelessly to the cloud, and the software automatically calculates maturity and estimates strength. The results are accessible from your phone or computer in real-time in the Maturix web portal.

Bridge construction

When building bridges, controlling the concrete curing process is essential. Fast but safe formwork removal is key for an efficient project where weather and wind conditions strongly influence the project. Traditional ten methods do not reflect the same curing process, and monitoring in the structure enables workflow optimisation based on data. 

How?

Using several sensors to monitor the curing process of a bridge at different positions. This enables controlling the curing process and reducing the risk of high internal temperature differences, which can cause cracks. Wireless data transmissions reduce on-site visits as the data is available through the web portal.

Post-tensioning

Post-tensioning is a technique to reinforce concrete. It makes it stronger and more flexible compared to conventional steel-reinforced concrete. Steel cables inside plastic sleeves are positioned in the form; then, the concrete is cast. After the concrete has gained the required strength, the cables are tensioned and anchored against the outer edges. Here, the timing for the stressing is essential to ensure excellent product quality. The post-tensioned concrete can be thinner and longer than conventional concrete slabs without any risk of cracking as the embedded cables help to stabilize.
The specific technique is commonly used for large commercial or industrial projects as extra equipment and skills are required. However, the additional costs for the post-tensioning are outreached with cutting down material costs as a less reinforcing material is needed.

How?

Using sensors measuring directly in the structure, you can follow the curing behaviour in real time. The data is sent continuously to the cloud and then accessible in the web browser. When the concrete reaches the required strength, you will receive an SMS or Email, and then you can align your schedule according to the data.

Mass concreting

Subways, dams or other projects with high demand on the concrete structure as large foundations require mass concreting. When pouring mass concrete, it is essential to monitor the curing process to control the overall strength development, follow the internal temperature differences, and act accordingly, as cracks and overall low product quality can result in enormous repair costs.

How?

Using several devices with Type K Thermocouples also covers vast concrete elements. The devices are set up in different positions to measure temperature and calculate the strength development. Alarms are set up in the software to monitor the internal temperature differences further to take action before cracks occur.
Monitoring the curing ensures high quality and safe construction while reducing unnecessary precautions and redundant waiting time.

Precast production

An intelligent monitoring system for each precast element enables you to demould faster while ensuring the required strength has been reached. Thus, the productivity for each lane is enhanced.

The option to integrate the heating system can cut energy costs further.

How?

Monitor the strength development at each element (hollow core element, prestressed elements, beams, slabs or elements requiring post-tensioning).
You receive real-time insights into the curing development accessible on your phone or computer. The option to set up a dashboard in the facility further improve the operation cycles and boost efficiency.
