Lately there has been a development of various computational models for studying the thermo mechanical behavior of concrete, where the input data, in general, are obtained from the literature. However, the concrete properties vary according to the used components. The purpose of this study is to estimate the heat generation and thermal properties due to chemical reaction in concrete of different strengths. To obtain the thermal parameters and analyzing the results we used an inverse algorithm combined with FEM. The binder used was composite cement produced locally. The experimental program comprised in the use of thermocouples located within the test bodies seventy-five cubic centimeters sides under semi-adiabatic conditions, they were recorded temperature values generated during the hydration process in a period of twenty-eight days with a time interval of one hour. These parameters were used lately for the analysis of samples. The main objective is to provide a numerical method consisting in the use of an inverse algorithm to estimate the thermal parameters associated with the generation of heat, specific heat and thermal conductivity to use for solving the direct heat transfer problems. This methodology allows the study of thermal and mechanical behavior of concrete at early-ages. Parameters were obtained during the hydration process, performing numerical simulations with those data. The results show a good approximation to the experimental data. It is concluded from this study that this proposed method is an accurate, stable, and efficient method for the analysis of early-ages behavior of concrete structures.
