Should I pour concrete today?

Every day concretors and construction managers tear their hair out unsure of whether they should or shouldn't pour concrete due to the weather conditions.


 

Rain, wind and heat wreak havoc on slabs causing cracking, dusting and efflorescence. Often it’s too late to turn the trucks back, and it is not until after the concrete is poured, they realise that it WAS A BAD DAY TO POUR.

Up until now the BOM Website has provided information on the weather conditions, and concrete companies have sold aliphatic alcohol to protect fresh concrete from the elements. Whilst concrete placers have done their best to wet down the sub base and ensure the effects of hot weather are mitigated.

BUT ALAS. All your problems are solved. There is now an APP available on your phone to alert you of concrete placing conditions in your area. It actually tells you whether it's a good day to pour or not.

If you want to place your concrete with the best results look no further than the newly released Cement Concrete & Aggregates Australia (CCAA) Smart Concreting APP.

The APP utilises local weather and atmospheric data to calculate evaporation rates. This provides simple guidelines on concrete cracking conditions to site personnel on construction projects to help prevent defects and encourage best practice.

Drawing on multiple data sources it provides:

  • real time weather guidance on the potential for plastic shrinkage cracking -
  • weather information allowing construction decisions to be made up to a week in advance 
  • background information on critical factors affecting concrete cracking including temperature, wind speed and relative humidity 
  • knowledge on how to prevent costly mistakes and remedial work 
  • easy access to valuable and relevant CCAA information on best practice guidelines for concrete placement 
  • knowledge about concrete, how it behaves and industry best practice

The APP can be downloaded FREE here from the iTunes and Google Play stores on your smart phone by searching for smart concreting or CCAA.

Perfectly placed concrete every time; you will love it!
