Mass Concrete Consulting: Scattergood Unit 3 Repowering Project, Los Angeles, CA

December 23, 2014

TCG was contracted to design thermal control plans for the mass concrete foundation elements of the Scattergood Unit 3 Repowering Project. TCG performed laboratory testing of multiple concrete mixtures to determine the concrete thermal characteristics. Thermal modeling of the concrete was performed for passive cooling scenarios using several types of insulation. TCG provided a full range of alternate site and concrete temperatures for the thermal curing. The monitoring criteria for the mass concrete elements during the thermal curing phase were also designed. TCG’s work included correlating the relationship between concrete maturity and allowable thermal gradients in mass concrete elements.
