A Numerical Computation Method for Pipe Cooling Concrete Temperature Field
Based on the coupled thermal-fluid pipe element, a numerical computation method for concrete temperature field with pipe cooling is proposed in this paper. This method has both the high efficiency of equivalent negative heat source method and the high precision of cooling pipe discrete element method. The theory and detailed steps of the method are introduced. Then the validity and accuracy of the proposed method are demonstrated by an engineering example of concrete ship lock which is better consistent with the measured results.
