Project Details

Title:Alternative in-situ Water-Cement Meter Using a Parallel-Plate Capacitor Concept
Principal Investigators:Amanda C. Bordelon
University:University of Utah
Grant #:DTRT13-G-UTC38 (MAP21)
Project #:MPC-529
RiP #:01648639
RH Display ID:15708
Keywords:admixtures, capacitors, measuring instruments, moisture content, prototypes, water cement ratio


The main objectives of this research are to develop and then evaluate the precision of a prototype parallel-plate capacitor style device to measure the fresh concrete mixture's water-to-cement content. This prototype device will be compared against existing standard methods for evaluating water-to-cement contents.
