ConcreteWorks V3 Training/User Manual (P1); ConcreteWorks Software (P2)

ConcreteWorks is designed to be a user-friendly software package that can help concrete professionals optimize concrete mixture proportioning, perform a concrete thermal analysis, and increase the chloride diffusion service life. The software package contains design modules for several structural concrete applications, including mass concrete shapes, bridge decks types, precast concrete beams, and concrete pavements. The purpose of this manual is not to give an exhaustive compilation on all concrete thermal, durability, and corrosion research in the literature. Instead, this manual is designed assist the user with the specific knowledge of concrete behavior needed to successfully use ConcreteWorks, built upon an already existing knowledge of fundamental concrete behavior. This manual is divided into an informational section followed by an operator’s manual. Chapter 2 presents the information on the ConcreteWorks mixture proportioning guide. Chapter 3 describes how the heat transfer calculations in the program are performed. Chapter 4 explains how the program’s thermal stress analysis and consequent cracking risk assessment is done. Chapter 5 discusses the chloride service life model built into ConcreteWorks. Finally, a ConcreteWorks operator’s manual is provided in Chapter 6. As of April 2017, the ConcreteWorks software is available on the Texas Department of Transportation (TxDOT) Engineering Software web page: http://www.txdot.gov/inside-txdot/division/information-technology/engineering-software.html.
