Research on Thermodynamical Performance of Concrete with Excessive Fly Ash Added in the Pile Cap of Well Tower
To meet the demand of high performance of mass concrete in a pile cap of well tower, excessive replacement of fly ash was applied to the mass concrete. Based on the theory of hydration heat of cement, several thermal parameters of mix proportion were analyzed and simulated test analyses and setting time test analyses were conducted in the laboratory. The results and data collected in the project locale both show that applying excessive replacement of fly ash reduces hydration heat of mass concrete in the pile cap of well tower, which extends setting time in mass concrete and avoids the cracks caused by temperature stress. The results achieve favorable effect and provide reference for design and construction of mix proportion in the project of mass concrete.
