What Is the Maturity Method?

On the left side, there’s an image of a Maturix Sensor hanging from a construction worker’s belt, and on the right, there is a tablet being held by someone that shows the maturity method data the sensor supplies.

The Definition

A hand is holding a black tablet that shows results from Maturix Sensors monitoring concrete.

Method Step 1: Make a Maturity Calibration

A diagram divided into six rectangles shows the six steps to calibrating maturity. These include batching the concrete mix and making some samples, inserting temperature sensors into some of the samples, monitoring the temperature and calculating the maturity, performing break tests at specific maturities, plotting strength versus maturity, and fitting a maturity curve.

Method Step 2: Estimate the In-Place Strength

A diagram is divided into three rectangles that describe the steps in estimating the in-place concrete strength. These include batching the same concrete mix as the one used in the lab tests, inserting temperature sensors into your structure to monitor the maturity of your concrete, and estimating the concrete strength with a maturity curve.

Method Step 3: Validate the Maturity Calibration

A construction worker is creating concrete samples to test.
