Abstract:
This report presents a discussion of the effects of heat generation and volume change on the design and behavior of mass concrete elements and structures. Emphasis is placed on the effects of restraint on cracking and the effects of controlled placing temperatures, concrete strength requirements, and material properties on volume change.
