- During the process of setting and hardening in concrete, the temperature profile shows a gradual nonlinear distribution due to the development of heat of hydration in cement. At early ages of concrete structures, this nonlinear distribution can have a large influence on crack evolution. It is thus important to obtain an accurate temperature history, and to do this, it is necessary to examine the thermal properties of the concrete. In this study, the convective heat transfer coefficient, which represents the heat transfer between a concrete surface and ambient air, was experimentally investigated with test variables such as the velocity of wind, the curing conditions, and the ambient temperature. For analyses using the thermal equilibrium boundary condition, it is generally noted that most of the heat release by the evaporation of moisture occurs at an early stage. To consider this phenomenon, the existing thermal equilibrium boundary condition has been modified so as to consider the evaporation quantity due to the evaporation effect. Convective heat transfer coefficients for a specific case were then calculated from the modified thermal equilibrium boundary condition using experimental results. © 2008 Elsevier Ltd.
