USE OF MATURITY SENSORS TO PREDICT CONCRETE COMPRESSIVE STRENGTH IN DIFFERENT CURING AND COMPACTION REGIMES
regimes (curing and compaction). Three groups of specimens were prepared, the first group was the controlled curing & compaction, the second was prepared with standard compaction but the curing was like curing in site (poor curing), the last group both compaction and curing were not standard. The results obtained from sensor compared with those from cube crushing test were acceptable in controlled group, but in the two other groups the results were inaccurate. Hence it was concluded that the maturity sensors will give results only in controlled conditions.
