Eiffage was looking for a concrete sensing solution that would monitor temperature differentials in a bridge construction project in Northern Canada.
LumiCon Concrete Sensors provided real-time and automated data collection in cold weather conditions. Built-in cellular connectivity allowed for seamless data streaming in real-time.
The sensors were easy to install and maintained their accuracy while operating in the exceedingly cold temperatures of Northern Canada.
Tridel needed a way to measure temperature and humidity to gain visibility into the curing of concrete in order to optimize the schedule by removing the formwork faster by using ASTM C1074 methods for estimating concrete strength in-situ.
Tridel used LumiCon multi-point temperature and humidity sensors for the project as a means of accurately sensing concrete slabs in real-time.
LumiCon multi-point sensors revealed a significant differential temperature across a mass concrete pour. It was also found that the curing of concrete was highly affected by the seasonal weather changes in Canada which cannot be captured by concrete cylinder break tests.
