Abstract: The aim of this paper is to propose a weakly coupled Thermo-Mechanical approach in order to assess the risk of early age cracking for large concrete structures accounting for statistical and energetic size effects. The strategy is applied to the first lift of the VeRCoRs containment wall mock-up (scale 1:3) and the obtained results are compared to in situ measurements in order to assess the model’s accuracy.
