The embedded water pipe system is often used as a standard technique for cooling heat to mitigate the crack induced by the thermo-stress during the concrete solidification. The prediction of the temperature distribution plays an essential role in the design of the structures and its cooling system. In this study, the singular boundary method, a semi-analytical meshless technique, is employed to analyze this troublesome problem. Compared with finite element method, numerical results indicate that the proposed scheme is accurate enough in the simulation of such complex problems.
