Mass concrete refers to volumes of concrete large enough to generate significant heat and temperature differentials during the hardening process. Heat and temperature differentials can cause issues with:
All concrete generates heat through hydration. In mass concrete, the heat generated varies depending on the location within the pour and the degree of insulation from the surrounding concrete, formwork and insulation. Higher temperatures accelerate the rate of hydration, thus the rate at which heat is produced.
Failure to manage the thermal process of mass concrete pours can impact structural integrity, durability and serviceability, significantly impacting project costs, timelines and risk.
