STUDY OF HYDRATION PROCESSES IN HYDRAULIC AND POZZOLANIC BINDERS

ETUDE DES PROCESSUS D'HYDRATATION DES LIANTS HYDRAULIQUES ET POUZZOLANIQUES

THEORETICAL AND EXPERIMENTAL STUDIES CONDUCTED UP TO NOW AT THE LCPC CONTRIBUTED TO THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE HYDRATION MECHANISMS OF VARIOUS HYDRAULIC AND POZZOLANIC BINDERS. THE APPLICATION OF THIS KNOWLEDGE WILL BE CONTINUED IN TWO DIRECTIONS: - INFLUENCE OF THERMAL TREATMENT ON THE HYDRATION PROCESSES OF CEMENT INGREDIENTS IN THE PRESENCE OR ABSENCE OF ADDITIVES HAVING ACCELERATING OR PLASTICIZING PROPERTIES; " INFLUENCE OF THE PRINCIPAL INGREDIENTS OF THE MAIN TYPES OF ADMIXTURES ON THE HYDRATION OF CEMENT WITH SECONDARY INGREDIENTS.
