ELECTRO-ACTIVATION OF CONCRETE

ELECTRO-ACTIVATION DES BETONS

THIS SHORT REPORT DEALS WITH A NEW METHOD OF THERMAL TREATMENT OF CONCRETE DEVELOPED BY THE CIVIL ENGINEERING INSTITUTE OF THE GDANSK POLYTECHNIQUE IN POLAND. IT INVOLVES THE ELECTRICAL HEATING OF FRESH CONCRETE IN A DIELECTRIC DRUM AND IN A HEATED MOULD MADE OF PREFABRICATED UNITS. THE INSTITUTE HAS ALSO STUDIED A PROCEDURE WHICH WOULD PERMIT SHORTENING THE THERMAL TREATMENT CYCLE FOR CONCRETE BY ELECTRO ACTIVATION, WITH THE AID OF A CONTINUOUS CURRENT OF VARIABLE POLARISATION.
