Mass concrete is increasingly common to many building and bridge projects, due to fast-track construction practices, and the use of higher strength or high-performance concretes with higher cementitious contents. These practices result in high concrete temperatures during curing, and temperature-related damage, such as cracking. Reducing temperatures and temperature differences is key to producing a structure that provides many years of service. This presentation provides information related to mass concrete, including practical guidance on how to manage concrete temperatures and minimize/prevent temperature-related cracking.
