Project description

The primary objective of this research project is to determine the precision of the water cement (w/c) meter based on various Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT) concrete mixtures. Secondary objective is to determine the influence on the w/c reading from the in-situ microwave meter from various materials or admixtures added to the concrete for UDOT projects.
