Beginning with a literature review on the effect of sustained high temperatures, this excellent publication reports new research on the effect of exposures up to 1600 F on compressive strength of concrete; designing prestressed concrete reactor vessels with temperatures applied in the range of 35 to 775 F; information for application to design of mass concrete dams; laboratory and field studies on the effect of temperature differentials on slabs; temperature expansion in continuous span bridges; temperature effect on the curing process; concrete construction in hot climates; water-reducing admixtures effect on temperature rise in mass concrete; and using thermoelectric modules to apply temperature changes to mechanically loaded structural models.
