Title: 207.4R-05: Cooling and Insulating Systems for Mass Concrete
Author(s): ACI Committee 207
Publication: Technical Documents
Appears on pages(s): 15
Keywords: cement content; coarse aggregate; creep; formwork; heat of hydration; mass concrete; modulus of elasticity; precooling; postcooling; pozzolan; restraint; specific heat; strain; stress; temperature rise; tensile strength; thermal conductivity.
Abstract:The need to control volume change induced primarily by temperature change in mass concrete often requires cooling and insulating systems. This report reviews precooling, postcooling, and insulating systems. A simplified method for computing the temperature of freshly mixed concrete cooled by various systems is also presented.
