Our team of experts in concrete technology offers you a wide range of services to ensure the correct application of Monsec technology. Discover our specialized and customized services to meet the needs of your projects.
MONSEC has the facilities and the know-how to address both the experimental and numerical component of the calibration process of your concrete according to (ASTM C1074-UNE 83160).
The practical application of the concrete strength calculation based on the maturity methods starts by experimentally obtaining the relationship between the and the strength of the concrete under consideration. This ratio is then used in the work carried out with the same concrete to determine, in view of its temperature history, the strength evolution.
The calibration process consists of manufacturing a minimum of 17 specimens in the laboratory of the same mix to be used on site. Two of them are used to record the evolution of temperatures and the others to characterize the evolution of mechanical properties at a minimum of 5 different ages. After all the mechanical tests have been carried out, the maturity (or equivalent time)-resistance curve is adjusted numerically.
