Concrete maturity is a widely practiced and effective method for estimating the strength of concrete in place, based on its age and temperature history. Accurate strength prediction saves time and money by allowing efficient scheduling for form removal and reshoring or prestressing and post-tensioning operations. Mathematical equations compare a maturity index to previous physical tests of the same mix design. Easy-to-use data logging meters log times and temperatures from pre-placed probes, and maturity values can be calculated for periods from a few hours to a few months.
