This study is about a Thermal analysis of early age mass concrete structure by using FEM. This paper discussed to predict the distribution of temperatures within a hydrating massive concrete by the development of a finite element model with different levels of replacements of fly ash. In this analysis, the replacement levels of fly ash such as 0%, 30%, 40%, and 50% are used to predict the temperature distribution of hydration of mass concrete with FEM model by using transient thermal analysis with software called ANSYS WORKBENCH 15.0. It is observed that by increasing the % replacements of cements with fly ash, the heat of hydration reduced significantly.
