The study presents the numerical and analytical simulation of the hardening temperature, thermal strains and stresses in the foundation of the sluice Sülfeld-Süd in Germany, which construction process was completed in November 2008. The present study relates to a particular construction stage of this foundation with real dimensions of 41.5 x 26.5m and a thickness of 2 m.The numerical analysis was performed in the software DIANA FEA. The obtained results are compared with actual measurements of temperature, strains and stresses in the sluice foundation.
