On-site monitoring of mass concrete offers several benefits. It may comprise a wide range of objectives from (i) the maintaining of adequate temperature conditions for the evolution of the desired concrete properties and to (ii) the determination of thermal and mechanical parameters for verification of the calculation models and assumptions applied for crack assessment of the considered structure.
Next to very general information on monitoring of mass concrete, this chapter presents different levels of measures with regard to the purpose and expected insights into each level, available instruments and least requirements on practical application, as well as possibilities for result verification. The chapter focuses on both established techniques with comprehensive experiences in many applications and comparably new techniques available on the market. Finally, the presented techniques and approaches were exemplified on three different application examples with regard to different measurement systems as well as types of structures.
