Maturity Method in Prestressed Concrete Applications

The concrete maturity method will be used to predict the strength of prestressed highway structures at critical times. Those times include when prestress load transfer can be accomplished, when the forms can be removed, when the item can be handled and transported, and placed, and finally to know if the structure is strong enough for its required use. Also, application of the maturity method to quality assurance will also be considered. A novel variation on ASTM C873 is introduced.
