In order to analyze the coupled influence of temperature and humidity on early-age concrete (including cement and copper tailings), a mathematical model is introduced on the basis of the Krstulovic-Dabic hydration reaction kinetic equations. In such a framework, the influence of hydration-released heat and water consumption are also taken into account. The results provided by such a model are verified by means of experiments and related sensor measurements. The research results show that this model can adequately predict the internal temperature and the humidity temporal evolution laws.
