Quality control of fresh concrete by advanced dispersion and attenuation characteristics of stress waves (3G012315)

This project seeks a methodology based on stress wave techniques that can assess crucial parameters of the concrete performance from the moment after mixing, when there is still the possibility to adjust or reject the material before being permanent part of the structure. The investigation will be based on elastic waves (using innovative dispersion and attenuation parameters) and acoustic emission (AE).
