Giatec Scientific, a knowledge-based company whose products solve engineering problems, recently developed the Giatec Smartrock. The Official Ionic Blog reports on the new product which transmits information to an Ionic app.
The product itself is a rugged, waterproof, wireless sensor which monitors the temperature of concrete from the fresh to solid stages. It can be installed in the rebar and embedded in the concrete framework:
“The continuous monitoring of concrete temperature can be used as a QC/QA method, as well as a maturity-based strength estimation of concrete,”
“The field monitoring of concrete temperature can also help with optimizing the formwork removal time, application of load on the structure, and adjusting the curing temperature of concrete in the construction job site.”
