Low Heat

Mass pours are largely beneficial with saving the associated costs and time with the decreased number of necessary joints. Because excess thermal energy is produced in large mass pours, it can often lead to cracking of the concrete – and a low heat cementitous solution is required.

A mass pour of sufficient size will demand special attention to logistics and technicalities including:

  • Concrete supply
  • Casting sequence
  • Cold joints
  • Plastic settlement
  • Heat of hydration
  • Early age thermal cracking
