FORECASTING THE STRENGTH OF HEAT-CURED CONCRETE

CALCUL PREVISIONNEL DES RESISTANCES DES BETONS APRES TRAITEMENT THERMIQUE

The behaviour of concrete containing different types of cement was studied for different types of heat treatment. A correlation was established between: heat treatment parameters, nature of the cement, and concrete strength. This correlation enables the strength of concrete at the stage of removal from the mould to be predicted and cuts down a large number of tests for optimizing treatment cycle. The degree of influence of several factors on sound propagation velocity in concrete was also determined. It is thus possible to make a better evaluation of concrete strength with sound velocity measurements. (TRRL)
