Title: Temperatures And Stresses In Mass Concrete
Author(s): Roy W. Carlson
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 497-516
Abstract:Interior and boundary temperature changes are considered separately. Interior temperature distri-butions are plotted to show effect of time, thickness of lift, type and quantity of cement, and precoollng. Surface temperature effect on boundary concrete is Simplified methods of computing both hori-zontal and vertical stresses due to temperature change are given, and value of thermal stress analysis is discussed. Factors producing favorable temperature in mass concrete are listed as low heat cement, low cement content, low casting temperature, shallow lifts and regularity of casting.
