Thermal Management in Mass Concrete
Metro Testing + Engineering provides temperature monitoring and predictive models for the curing process of mass concrete due to the heat-of-hydration effect between the water and cement in the concrete mix. Curing and hydration rates are important for determining the elasticity and strength of the final product. Site temperature monitoring and proper control systems provide an important diagnostic tool during the curing process. Laboratory mock-up testing can provide an early indication of the concrete mix’s thermal behaviour and provide an operational check of the temperature-monitoring system before field deployment.
