Concrete Temperature Monitoring in Mass Concrete

2021-5-10  The Temperature Monitoring Process. The initial process for heat monitoring of concrete mixtures is based on predictions made by taking into account the design of the concrete mix, the shape of the project, the ambient temperature, and more. Once the concrete is in place, temperature monitoring sensors and thermocouples are used to report on ...

Monitor Mass Concrete Placement Temperatures with

Every mass concrete placement project requires the contractor to monitor concrete temperature during curing. Many specifications will require the development of a thermal control plan, or will specify how and where to measure temperatures. Contractors use COMMAND Center to track the internal temperatures of in-place concrete during curing.

Thermal control plans for mass concrete - Beton Consulting ...

2020-9-10  Thermal modeling predicts the core temperature of the concrete over time. The core temperature depends on the concrete mixture proportions—how much of each type of cementitious material is present—and the initial placement temperature. Insulation alters the surface temperature to keep the temperature differential within acceptable limits.

2016-10-11  As an example, to reduce the maximum concrete temperature by approximately 10 F (6 C), the concrete temperature at the time of placement should generally be reduced by 10 F (6 C). Methods to precool concrete include shading and sprinkling of aggregate piles (as appropriate), use of chilled mix water, and replacement of mix water by ice.
