Abstract : Sixteen combinations of ambient conditions, construction practices, cement type, and thermal properties of concrete were investigated as 16 problems to determine the influence of these combinations or of the separate variables on the predicted thermal history of the concrete in Greers Ferry Dam. Solutions to the 16 problems were electronically computed on an IBM-650 computer, and a brief summary of the computed data is given in this report. (Author)
