I’m in the middle of a house build on a slab with radiant floor heating and have developed a bit of an artsy wave pool effect in the concrete. I would sure appreciate any insight members might have on this. The slab was poured August 2nd, so about 6 weeks ago. It is a thickened edge slab with pex tubing, and 2 inch blue foam underneath. Everything looked good to me (I don’t know much about concrete) up until yesterday. I went up to check things out and found humps, dips, and waves in the concrete. It just looks so strange to me and I don’t know what to think. The contractor hasn’t seen it yet other than photo’s I’ve shared, and he’s at a loss as well. What do you all think?

Can concrete move that much after 6 weeks without cracking?

Yes, I agree, but I can't find any signs of a topping layer and the original polishing lines are visible from the bad areas to the unaffected areas as well.
