For your monitoring needs, we recommend our reusable devices. Our reusable devices are installed outside the concrete either on the formwork or on the rebar. The cable connection is then buried into the concrete. The cable connection records what is happening to the concrete while allowing you to monitor the environmental conditions via the probe on the housing. This is ideal for monitoring up to 28 days. After that, you can remove the cable, attach another, and use the unit on another pour. Translated with www.DeepL.com/Translator (free version)

Details of our calculation
With the help of the ConcR sensors, you know exactly when to strip off the formwork and how long the concrete monitoring shall take. Real-time access to data allows you to act quickly and optimize your work shifts and resources. Without having to set up a mobile laboratory on site, you can monitor each poured structural element directly using ConcR. This way, you can complete your project in [concr-result field=412 ] days instead of the originally planned [concr-result field=76 ], saving [concr-result field=425 ] days.
In other words: you reduce the project duration by [concr-result field=440 ]%! In addition, you can also reduce your construction costs:Formwork costs
We estimate that you will have to use a total of approx. [concr-result field=408 ]m² of formwork for this project. For engineering structures, we do not see any potential savings in the amount of formwork required, and therefore no cost savings. However, the increased pace of construction allows for savings in formwork rental costs or improves depreciation costs if the formwork is owned. If you rent your formwork at an average market price of €0.60/m², you would pay [concr-result field=409 ] EUR. With ConcR, this cost can be reduced to [concr-result field=414 ] EUR, which is a saving of [concr-result field=441 ]%. Same applies to the purchasing scenario with consideration of depreciation cost.Indirect costs
In addition to the formwork rental/purchase savings, the shortened project duration would influence the time-based indirect costs. Assuming that they contribute to 15% of the construction cost which is estimated to be [concr-result field=420 ] EUR, you make a saving of [concr-result field=427 ] EUR, thanks to earlier completion. Total Cost Saving (Conclusion) In total, using ConcR can make an additional saving of approximately [concr-result field=443 ]–[concr-result field=444 ] % depending on renting or purchasing the formwork. Avoiding risks From a quality perspective, there is a significant risk of temperature sudden development or drop if not monitored properly, which contributes to an approximate amount of [concr-result field=429 ] EUR from the project value. Risks such as; thermal and shrinkage cracks, and concrete spalling. Basic idea is that: as concrete gets hotter, it expands. As it gets cooler, it contracts. Therefore, If the concrete wants to expand or contract but cannot, it will most likely crack, which will: 1. Expose the rebars to the outer surfaces leading to an erosion. 2. Begin to dehydrate the cement paste (losing the chemically combined water of hydration), which will gradually weaken the concrete bond and affect its compressive strength.Therefore, Using ConcR product in monitoring the temperature development in concrete is of a great value.
