Precooling Mass Concrete Concrete Construction Magazine

Aug 21, 2007  Thermal cracking negates the benefits of less permeable concrete and deeper cover by providing a direct path for corrosion-causing agents to reach the reinforcing steel. To deal with these issues, designers and owners are treating more concrete placements as “mass concrete,” traditionally defined as any placement greater than 3 feet thick.

CFA: Concrete Cracking Overview

Concrete placed during hot midday temperatures will contract as it cools during the night. A 40°F drop in temperature between day and night-not uncommon in some areas-would cause about 0.03 in. of contraction in a 10-ft length of concrete, sufficient to cause cracking if the concrete is restrained. Thermal expansion can also cause cracking.
