Concrete Consolidation: How to Get the Perfect Pour

MEG Group has been proud to assist in various transport and rail extension projects with concrete consolidation and vibration equipment with mobile control systems, these include the Yanchep Rail Extension and the NorthLink WA projects.

Problem

The clients required concrete quality management. Concrete consolidation that has not been properly vibrated -removing air pockets to eliminate voids in the concrete- causes cavities, resulting in the failure of the structural integrity of the bridge formwork. On the other hand, concrete should not be over-vibrated as this results in the aggregate settling at the bottom, this also weakens the structural integrity of the bridge formwork.

Project Requirements

Our clients have urgently required mobile control systems solution that utilised our OLI high-frequency concrete consolidation vibration motors for use in the formwork bridge construction.

There have been many challenges and factors to these projects that have needed consideration. Changing environmental and operational conditions is a major factor with the equipment needing to be adaptable to the varying project requirements.
