QUESTIONS ON "TOBERMORITE" /IN FRENCH/

RESEARCH ON TOBERMORITE (A HYDRATED CALCIUM SILICATE WHICH CONSTITUTES APPROXIMATELY 60 PER CENT OF PORTLAND CEMENT PARK) HAS BEEN CARRIED OUT IN THE U.S.A., USING AN ELECTRON MICROSCOPE. THIS ARTICLE DESCRIBES NEWLY-ACQUIRED KNOWLEDGE ON TOBERMORITE AND ESTABLISHES A RELATION BETWEEN THIS KNOWLEDGE AND FREYSSINET'S THEORY OF PSEUDO-SOLIDS WHICH EXPLAINS SHRINKAGE, CREEP AND THERMAL EXPANSION PHENOMENA. NEW INFORMATION ON TOBERMORITE SHOWS THAT BONDS BETWEEN SOLID, AND WATER ARE OF VARIOUS TYPES, AND THE INFLUENCE OF THE VARIOUS BONDS BETWEEN SOLID PARTICLES AND WATER ON CREEP, SHRINKAGE AND THERMAL EXPANSION OF CONCRETE IS STRESSED. /RRL/LCPC/
