Temperature Management of Mass Concrete Structures ...

Nov 02, 2006  Many mass concrete projects specify a 35° F maximum temperature differential, and some limit the maximum internal temperature (usually 160°F). Contractors and engineers on these projects are increasingly called upon to develop a temperature control plan to meet these specifications. Unfortunately, even though the intent of the specification ...

Thermal Modelling of Mass Concrete Elements BCRC

When constructing mass concrete elements, the long term durability of the concrete can be compromised if consideration is not given to limiting peak temperatures and temperature differentials within the concrete.

THERMAL EXPANSION AND CONTRACTION

When free to deform, concrete will expand or contract due to fluctuations in temperature. The size of the concrete structure whether it is a bridge, a highway, or a building does not make it immune to the effects of temperature. The expansion and contraction with changes in temperature occur regardless of the structure’s cross-sectional area.

Mass Concrete - Portland Cement Association

Mass concrete is defined by the American Concrete Institute as: “any volume of concrete in which a combination of dimensions of the member being cast, the boundary conditions, the characteristics of the concrete mixture, and the ambient conditions can lead to undesirable thermal stresses, cracking, deleterious chemical reactions, or reduction in the long-term strength as a result of elevated ...

(30 to 91 cm) can increase approximately 36°F to 108°F (20°C to 60°C) during the first 2 days after casting. If concrete members are allowed to cool quickly, tensile stresses may reach values higher than the developing ten-sile strength of the concrete.

Thermal mass YourHome

Thermal mass. Thermal mass is the ability of a material to absorb and store heat energy. A lot of heat energy is required to change the temperature of high density materials like concrete, bricks and tiles. They are therefore said to have high thermal mass. Lightweight materials such as timber have low thermal mass.

Temperature Sensors: Types, How It Works, Applications

Except for the procedure adopted during construction, the greatest single factor in causing stress in mass concrete is due to the temperature change. For analysing the development of thermal stress and for control of artificial cooling, it is, therefore, necessary to monitor the temperature variation of concrete during construction.
