Influence of Environmental Conditions on Temperature Field of Concrete
The temperature cracking of early-aged concrete is often met by constructors in recent years, because of large temperature difference of core and surface of concrete. Experimental study on temperature field of concrete under different environmental conditions is conducted. Different environmental conditions such as wind speed, formwork removal, sun radiation and conservation are involved. The influence of environmental conditions on the peak value of rising temperature, temperature difference of core and surface and descending speed of temperature of concrete is studied. Result obtained from this study can be used in controlling of early-age cracking of concrete.
