ACCELERATED HARDENING OF CONCRETE PRODUCTS WITH THERMAL TREATMENT

L'ACCELERATION DE DURCISSEMENT DES PRODUITS EN BETON PAR TRAITEMENT THERMIQUE

The author examines the influence of the various factors to be taken into account while planning the thermal treatment of concrete products. Concrete hardening process is studied together with the setting up of a thermal treatment cycle. Details are given of various thermal treatment methods which can be used in the concrete industry, of technological aspects of treatments applicable to various types of concrete products and of the influence of thermal treatment on concrete characteristics. Two examples of practical calculations are given: design of a hot concrete plant and design of an installation for the free-steam curing of concrete. /TRRL/
