Performance of maturity method for estimation of concrete strength based on cubic specimens




strength gain, sensor, concrete, construction, destructive method, non-destructive method


To assess the condition of the structures of buildings and structures, a comprehensive analysis of the factors affecting their performance characteristics - concrete strength, protective layer, and rebar diameter, thermal conductivity and moisture content of concrete, adhesion of protective and facing coatings, frost resistance and water resistance of concrete - is required. However, with all the variety of monitored parameters the control of concrete strength has a special place because when assessing the condition of the structure the determining factor is the compliance of the actual strength of concrete to the design requirements. This paper presents studies on the determination of concrete strength based on modern technology, wireless sensor as well as instrumentation IPS. These methods are particularly effective in the case of non-linear relationships between different system parameters, as in the behavior of concrete parameters. They can also provide rapid measurements by continuously monitoring the internal condition of the reinforced concrete structure. The found graduation dependences and determination coefficients equal to 0.9234 and 0.9702 justify the convergence of the results of the two methods of strength gain control.
