Data Loggers for Concrete Curing

Data Loggers

Concrete Curing

Monitoring the temperature of concrete during the curing process is a critical factor in making sure the product sets to its full strength. If the concrete temperature goes below 50°F, the hydration of water slows, and if it continues to drop below 40°F, the hydration process essentially stops. Without hydration, the concrete can’t set properly and won’t achieve the same strength as it would have under the correct hydration conditions. If concrete is kept too hot, the hydration process speeds up which causes a decrease in strength and even cracking

MadgeTech’s thermocouple temperature data loggers can be used to monitor concrete throughout the curing process. Thermocouples can be embedded within the concrete so that the actual temperature of the mixture is logged, rather than the air temperature. Our concrete curing data loggers are available in single channel, multi-channel, submersible, wireless, and even with displays.

Concrete curing sounds like a simple process, just combine the cement with water and wait for it to dry, right? Wrong! To maximize the strength of the concrete, you're going to have to control the moisture and temperature, so plan ahead of time.

Energy efficient products all flooding the marketplace as people become more conscientious about the environment and saving money. In the U.S. alone, building efficiency products and services grew 8% last year, reaching $26.4 billion. With the advanced energy industry worth $200 in the U.S. and $1.4 trillion worldwide, it's no surprise energy efficient technology is now being applied to concrete.

3D printers are paving the way in industries across-the-board, making it easier and cheaper to manufacture products on the fly. Whether it's for personal use or business, a 3D printer will cost you a pretty penny. For all of us who don't have plans on dishing out that dough, we can just be in awe of a contractor from Minnesota who built a 3D printer that could change the future of architecture.

Concrete is fundamental to the construction of modern buildings and infrastructure, but that doesn't mean it's a perfect material. One of the drawbacks to concrete is that creating it accounts for more than 3.5% of the United States' total CO2 emissions and 5% of worldwide releases. In an attempt to make construction work more "green," researchers around the globe are looking for ways to create stronger, more durable concretes that will lend the same strength and stability without needing to use as much of the material. Rouzbeh Shahsavari, a materials engineer at Rice University, may have uncovered a key piece in the efficient concrete puzzle by studying some very ancient building materials.

If you live in or have passed through a major American city over the past half-decade, you’ve probably noticed the explosion of skyscrapers and high-rise apartment buildings gracing skylines across the United States. As young people continue to flood cities, tall buildings seek to make the best use of limited urban space, which presents unique engineering challenges to building designers and construction crews.
