Project description

This study will evaluate the performance of an automated system of measuring the fresh properties of concrete in truck mixer. The automated system called ‰ÛÏVerifi‰Û enables the evaluation of slump and temperature variations as well as monitoring of the amount of water and/or dispersant added to the mixture. This collaboration is essential for future quality management of infrastructure materials.
