The current methods for estimating concrete strength are either inaccurate or require extensive calibration. In this study, a multisensor device was used to monitor concrete mixtures immediately after placement and to predict values of concrete compressive strength. The research included 13 randomly chosen mixtures from six ready mixed concrete manufacturers.
