Project: Freshcon equipment for continuous monitoring of binding and hardening of concrete and mortar

project duration
01-JAN-06 – 31-DEC-08
abstract
The FreshCon equipment allows continuous monitoring of binding and hardening of concrete and mortar, whereas traditional methods only provide information on arbitrarily defined points in the proces. This equipment is based on the relation between travel time, damping and frequency content of transmitted ultrasound waves and the elastic properties of the material.
