Abstract :

Present paper considers the temperature distribution in the concrete subjected to transient thermal loading on the concrete due to boiling water. Concrete when exposed to elevated temperatures during fire or in the spent fuel tanks, the heat causes changes in mechanical properties of concrete such as compressive and flexural strength. The study of temperature distribution in concrete subjected to thermal loading was done using finite element approach. The transient thermal analysis was done on the concrete and the results were matched with the experimental data available. The finite element software ABAQUS ver. 6.12 was used to study the transient thermal analysis of concrete. Thermal properties of concrete were adopted from Eurocode 2. The results of temperature distribution in the concrete obtained from the software coordinate with the experimental results available.
