Study on Precooling of Concrete Using Ice and Cooling Water ;;;;
Crack control due to temperature is an important factor for the mass concrete structure. Pre-cooling is the effective system to reduce the highest temperature of mass concrete. In this study, for pre-cooling, cooling water, cooling water with ics flake are used. The results of a series of experimental studies indicate that the changes in properties of fresh concrete after cooling are of low degree, and compressive strength of concrete is changed very little by cooling. The adiabatic temperature rise is also measured with pre-cooling concrete specimens. It is shown that hydration heat characteristics of cement and concrete were largely affected by pre-cooling.
