in this paper, the temperature field and the stress field of roller compacted concrete dam are calculated with the 3--D FEM floating mesh method program. Such factors as procedure of construction, variationof transverse joints should be'considered and simulated' Under the same construction condition, the stress ofmakeup temperature drop, the temperature field and thermal stress in the construction period have been calculated for various transverse joints. The results is meaningful for reference in the selection of transverse joints.
