Monitoring the concrete curing process at a bridge project is essential to optimise the formwork removal time. Traditional test specimen can not accurately reflect the in-place curing behaviour of the concrete and weather conditions highly influence the curing. Using wireless sensors enables faster formwork removal based on data.

Challenges

The curing process of bridges needs special attention, as it is influenced strongly through external factors such as wind, weather or heating sources. As the bridge itself has to have a certain required strength before the formwork can be removed and other following working steps can be started, it is important to ensure that a certain strength has been reached before proceeding.

Key Challenges

Solution

Using Maturix, wireless concrete sensors provide Zacho-Lind with direct insights into the curing process of the on-site structure. The contractor installed three Maturix transmitters to monitor at three positions (e.g. center, edge and joint) to follow the strength development in real-time.
The software shows the temperature development and the estimated strength based on the measurements from the sensors.
Additional software features such as automatic documentation and alarm setting allows keeping the overview of what happens on site.

Results​

Having the real-time insight into the concrete curing process enabled Zacho-Lind to plan better, act according to data and in the end, remove the formwork faster to save time and money.  The data allowed Zacho-Lind to determine the optimal formwork removal time while ensuring safety.
Here, the measurements showed that they were able to remove the shuttering against the expected 14 days after 7 days. The huge time saving enabled cut down rental costs for equipment drastically.
