I am trying to simulate a RCC dam construction process.In order to do so, I am using the birth and death procedure. Each concrete layer has a placement temperature of 16 C. I start the transient analysis killing all the concrete layer except the fist one. This analysis consideres convection, and heat generation. When this analysis is done, I active the second concrete layer. This new layer has convection with the surounding air, heat generation and , as stated before, a placemenet temperature of 16 C. How can I define this temperature for this and the following layers ?
