In-Place Concrete 
Strength Measurement

ConcreteAI System monitors, visualizes, and validates the early-age strength and temperature development of job-site concrete in real-time for shorter structure cycle time and reduced embodied carbon

Why In-Situ Concrete Strength?

Every builder faces the crucial question of determining when freshly poured concrete has achieved the necessary strength to progress to the next phase of construction. Typically, they rely on standard-cured samples to gauge strength, but these may not reflect on-site conditions accurately due to temperature and volume differences.

In reality, in-place concrete often gains strength more rapidly than standard samples during the early stages, meaning projects could start earlier for quicker progress.

The structure heats up, but the cubes remain cool!

In-Place Concrete VS
Standard-Curing Cubes

See how lab-cured samples often underestimate early age in-place compressive strength because they can't replicate the high internal temperatures seen during curing of large slabs. These temperatures speed up strength gain.

Get precise in-place concrete strength data for quicker, eco-friendlier, and higher-quality construction planning and scheduling.

HOW TO USE

Measuring Concrete Strength
On-Site: A 3-Step Guide

STEP 01

Collect Data from Concrete

ConcreteAI's SmartHub can link to four ports, each featuring an embedded sacrificial sensor within the concrete for data collection. Once monitoring is complete, the sensor is extracted, allowing for SmartHub reusability.

  • What does the ConcreteAI sensor monitor?
    ConcreteAI's SmartHub offers real-time monitoring of concrete temperature, which is then correlated with concrete compressive strength.

  • Is the method of strength measurement approved in Singapore and other areas?
    Certainly. ConcreteAI's system comprises two components: the SmartHub, which employs the maturity method to deliver real-time concrete strength readings, and the SmartCure system, which utilizes temperature-matched curing for in-place concrete strength measurement. While the SmartHub provides continuous readings through a non-destructive method, the SmartCure system offers destructive results. In Singapore, the maturity method is endorsed in various standards such as SS 78: Part B1: 1992 (2018), SS EN 13791:2009 (2016), SS 592:2013, SS EN 1992-1-1:2008 (2015) Eurocode 2, and SS EN 13670:2022, among others. Additionally, the temperature-matched curing method is highlighted in BS 1881:130 and SS EN 13670:2022. These standards are referenced in the latest published Approved Solutions by the Building and Construction Authority of Singapore. (link) For other regions and countries, we recommend reaching out to us directly or contacting the local authority to verify if the BS and EN standards are referenced in the local guidelines.

  • How do you measure compressive strength in real-time?
    Concrete’s compressive strength is determined using the internationally accepted maturity method in accordance with ASTM C 1074 and EN 13670. Maturity is the relationship between concrete temperature, time and strength gain. It is a way to measure the concrete’s in situ strength to expedite schedule, increase level of confidence and improve construction methods. Every concrete mix design has its own strength – maturity relationship. Thus, for every unique mix design, a 28-day calibration period is required to find the relationship.

  • How many data points are required inside a structure to measure compressive strength?
    Traditionally, we suggest installing a minimum of 2 data points within a structure or casting area. These monitoring points should be positioned at critical locations where the maximum working stress occurs. At the critical locations, a redundant sensor will also be placed. For every project, we will coordinate with and seek approval from the project team to finalize the monitoring plan. Should you require clarification on monitoring specific structures or casting items, please don't hesitate to reach out to us via email or phone.
