Learn MoreJul 19, · July 19, . Maturity is a concept that has existed since the 1950s. Since then, various equations have been proposed to measure the maturity of concrete. This chapter discusses three different methods that can be used in concrete maturity measurement: the temperature-time factor, the equivalent age, and the weighted maturity.

Learn MoreConcrete compressive strength for general construction varies from 15 MPa (2200 psi) to 30 MPa (4400 psi) and higher in commercial and industrial structures. Compressive strength of concrete depends on many factors such as water-cement ratio, cement strength, quality of concrete material, quality control during the production of concrete, etc

Learn MoreJun 15, · The concrete maturity method is simply defined as the relationship of strength to the temperature & age of concrete. Some of the accepted standards of this method are ASTM C1074, ASTM C918, ACI 228 – 1R, AASHTO T325. Different approaches of concrete maturity method. There are 3 common ways to estimate the maturity of the concrete.

Learn MoreThe aim of this study is to propose a methodology for the quality control of sprayed concrete based upon the maturity method that overcomes the difficulties mentioned previously. Accordingly, an experimental programme was conducted involving the spraying of 24 different concrete mixes, which were then characterized for the evolution of temperature and compressive strength.
