STUDY OF THE ACTION MECHANISM OF CONCRETE ADMIXTURES

ETUDE DU MECANISME D'ACTION DES ADJUVANTS DU BETON

THE AIM OF THIS RESEARCH IS TO SHOW THE PHYSICO-CHEMICAL MECHANISMS OF THE ACTION OF ADMIXTURES ON MORTAR AND CONCRETE. INVESTIGATIONS WERE CARRIED OUT ON THE MAIN CONVENTIONAL TYPES OF ADMIXTURES: PLASTICIZERS, AIR ENTRAINING AGENTS, ACCELERATORS AND RETARDERS, NEWER PLASTICIZERS AND VARIOUS SYNTHETIC RESINS. IN 1979 IT IS PLANNED TO CONTINUE THE RESEARCH STARTED IN 1978 ON SYNTHETIC RESINS AND THE INTERACTION OF THERMAL TREATMENT OF CONCRETE AND ADMIXTURES. SPECIAL ATTENTION WILL BE GIVEN TO A MICROSCOPY STUDY OF MATERIALS IDENTIFICATION AND NEW AIR-ENTRAINING AGENTS (HOLLOW SHOTS).
