dc.description.abstract Over the years, many different simplified prediction methods have been developed to predict the temperature development within mass concrete members. This paper compares calculated temperature values from three commonly-used concrete temperature prediction methods to actual temperatures in eight different concrete bridge members measured during construction. A simple temperature calculation method, the graphical method of ACI 207.2R, and a numerical heat transfer method (the Schmidt Method) were used to predict peak temperatures. The Schmidt Method performed the best when semi-adiabatic calorimetry results were used in the analysis. Suggestions are made on ways to improve the best technique, which was the Schmidt Method. en_US
