Extracted from text ... PHYSICS PROF DEVELOPS SYSTEM TO MONITOR CEMENT CURING AN ELIZABETHTOWN COLLEGE PROFESSOR has developed an embedded sensor that functions in cement much like a thermometer in the Thanksgiving turkey. 'The thermometer indicates if the turkey is done by measuring its internal temperature, ' said Nathaniel Hager III, an adjunct faculty member in Elizabethtown's physics and engineering department. 'The embedded sensor does the same thing in concrete by monitoring how quickly water involved in the curing process is chemically combining with Portland cement.' Hager's research, conducted with business partner and chemist Roman C Domszy, involves embedding a disposable sensor in a ..
