How can predict the maximum temperature and maximum difference in mass concrete

Now, I'm dealing with the problems with the temperature in mass concrete. How can we predict the max. temp. and max difference?

If the temp. is too high, what method we can use to reduce the heat generation in mass concrete?
One way is we use the cooling pipe system, but the effect of this is not high.

  1. Dear @Eagle!

    Now, i'm dealing with a problem. This's about the design of cooling pipe in mass concrete. But the calculation of this is very difficult.
    I have read some papers about this problem, we can calculate the "heat transfer coeff." and use it as a input parameter for internal flow in Midas Program (In attached file).

    So, do You have any materials or paper discuss deeply about this? And we can calculate the effect of the cooling pipe system by hand (use numerical method, not by Midas program)?
    Thanks You so much and really sorry If i wasting your time.

  2. Hi @wyfjta
    I can't really share copyright protected materials here, however, I will send you what I have in a private message.

    Attached is another spreadsheet as per the CIRIA 660

  3. Dear @Eagle
    Thank you for your soon reply. I just found that, in CIRIA C660 (Early-age thermal crack control in concrete) of P B Bamforth show the detail of predicting the temperature using the model based on adiabatic temperature data (the detail of this model is in Appendix A2). But I can't find it (Appendix A2) on the Internet.
    If you have, please share for me. I'm really need it.
    Thanks you so much.
