Temperature control is a key factor which affects the construction quality of the mass concrete, which is also an important measure to prevent crack propagation. Lots of engineering practices show that most of temperature cracks come out in the form of the surface crack during the construction of the concrete dam. In addition, deep cracks and transverse cracks are usually developed by surface cracks. Strengthening conversation and surface insulation are one of the main methods to prevent surface cracks. In this paper, Xiluodu hydropower dam is taken as the engineering background, and an insulation monitoring experiment under the winter low-temperature condition was carried out on the fresh concrete layer during the construction period using the distributed fiber optic temperature monitoring system. The inversion of the equivalent heat coefficient for the fresh concrete layer with the covering of the polyethylene membrane insulation materials was conducted, besides the monitoring results and the feedback analysis of the conservation status was obtained based on the test data. The above procedure provides a basis for evaluating the quality of construction and the dynamic adjustment of the construction programs.
