Methods of Limiting Temperature of Concrete - Structural

2021-8-16  The common practice is to limit the temperature difference between the external concrete surface and the core to Celsius 20. However, in some projects, this value is kept at Celsius 25 considering the scale and type of concrete to be used. Further, the temperature gradient is not allowed to exceed Celsius 25 per linear meter.
