COMMAND Center to Exhibit at the Missouri Concrete Conference
COMMAND Center will be exhibiting at the Missouri Concrete Conference in Rolla, Missouri on May 6 and 7. The conference will be held on the Missouri University of Science and Technology campus at the Havener Center.
The conference includes presentations and panels from industry professionals on topics including pavements, ready mix/precast operations, building and structures, and construction. Sessions on the schedule include cold weather concreting, high early strength mixtures, and the use of maturity testing in Missouri, among others.
The maturity method is a way of evaluating fresh concrete’s early-age, in-place strength by relating time and temperature measurements to actual strength values. Typically, in-situ strength estimation is achieved through standard test methods which involve flexural or compressive tests of beam or cylinder specimens. However, concrete in the field does not always gain strength at the same rate as test specimens. Maturity testing addresses this guesswork and can show if on-site concrete has achieved required strength and whether or not formwork removal and application of loads is feasible.
