ABSTRACT: This paper addresses fundamental issues of influence of elevated temperature and moderate wind speed on mass transport properties of concrete including moisture diffusivity D and convective moisture transfer coefficient hf. Based on this data for concretes of varying water-cement ratios, certain invariant functional forms are postulated for variables of interest, leading to the development of a minimum crack mix design model.
