A lot depends on the strength development of concrete on a construction site. Weather and temperature conditions can have a massive influence on the progress of construction work. In this context, the maturity method represents an important procedure for determining the compressive strength. By using it correctly, you can make many relevant decisions more reliably and quickly. Do heating devices need to be installed to accelerate maturity? Or are cooling measures even required to prevent cracks and other defects?
In this article, we’ll explain how to use the maturity method on your jobsite to determine the right time for stripping, scheduling re-formwork, or traffic clearances.

1. Determine measuring points
2. Attach temperature sensors
3. Make the connection
4. Start concrete casting
5. Calculate the degree of maturity
6. Determine the strength on the spot
Here's how ConcR makes determining maturity easier for you
- You only determine the desired maturity function. ConcR then calculates the running time and the associated strength automatically.
- There is also no need for tedious documentation: all information is stored in the cloud and can be accessed from any internet-enabled device. You don’t even have to be on site to do this.
- Instead of constantly checking the values, you can also set the system to automatically inform you when certain target values are reached.
Did you know that ConcR also has reusable sensors for concrete monitoring in its range with the R series? Our online store shows you both models.
