Concrete maturity sensors like the COMMAND Center system provide accurate and real-time data on the strength and temperature of in-place concrete. These sensors eliminate guesswork by offering a reliable method to evaluate concrete strength, based on time and temperature measurements.
Construction teams can make informed decisions about formwork removal and load application, reducing uncertainty and improving project timelines. Additionally, the sensors enhance efficiency by offering quick and efficient monitoring of concrete curing, replacing time-consuming laboratory tests. This streamlines construction processes and optimizes schedules, reducing significant costs.
Moreover, concrete maturity sensors ensure quality and durability by monitoring temperature differentials within mass concrete. By maintaining appropriate temperatures, construction teams can prevent temperature-related damage and ensure the long-term performance of the concrete. The sensors enable data-driven decision making by collecting and analyzing temperature data. Professionals can identify trends, optimize curing methods, and improve future practices based on comprehensive and accurate data. This promotes continuous improvement and enhances quality control.
In the following case studies, we can see that the use of COMMAND Center addresses uncertainty in concrete strength and maturity as well as maintaining appropriate temperatures.
Case Study 1: Mercedes-Benz Stadium Construction in Atlanta
Reducing uncertainty and ensuring appropriate timing for formwork removal and load application.
The COMMAND Center system was used to measure the maturity of fresh, in-place concrete at the stadium. The maturity method provided a way to evaluate the concrete's early-age, in-place strength by relating time and temperature measurements to actual strength values. The software displayed temperature and temperature differential data, provided calibrated maturity curves based on break data, and calculated and displayed maturity and corresponding strength data as the concrete cured. This allowed construction teams to quickly and reliably determine when the concrete achieved the necessary strength level, reducing uncertainty and ensuring appropriate timing for formwork removal and load application.
Case Study 2: S.T. Wooten Corporation Project in Havelock, NC
Maintaining appropriate temperatures and temperature ranges within mass concrete to prevent temperature-related damage.
S.T. Wooten Corporation used the COMMAND Center system on a North Carolina Department of Transportation project to monitor and report temperature gain in massive footings. By placing the self-logging sensors within the concrete, temperature data was recorded and stored internally at predefined intervals. The data could be retrieved wirelessly or with a direct connection, depending on the project needs, and analyzed using the COMMAND Center software. This allowed S.T. Wooten to ensure that the concrete stayed within the allowable temperature range, reducing the risk of temperature-related damage and ensuring the longevity of the concrete.
