Grupo Unidos por el Canal – Adiabatic Temperature Rise Testing


Panama City, Panama
Client: Grupo Unidos poe el Canal S.A. (GUPC)
Owner: Panama Canal Authority

Fall Line performed Adiabatic Temperature Rise Testing on both the mass and structural concrete mixes proposed for use at the Panama Canal Expansion Project.  At the completion of the adiabatic testing the samples were core drilled to obtain cylindrical specimens which were then tested for compressive strength, Young’s modulus, and direct tensile strength, including full stress-strain curves.  Testing was performed at our USA laboratory facility.
