EXPERIMENTAL RESEARCH ON THE ACCELERATION OF HARDENING OF CEMENT BY HEATING

THE INVESTIGATION OF THE EFFECT OF HEAT TREATMENT OF CONCRETE CARRIED OUT AT CENTRE EXPERIMENTAL DU BATIMENT ET DES TRAVAUX PUBLICS IS DESCRIBED. THE HEAT TREATMENT OF CONCRETE CAUSES MORE RAPID GENERATION OF STRENGTH TO ENABLE THE HANDLING OF UNITS. THE IMMEDIATE QUALITIES ARE ADEQUATE BUT A FORCIBLE TREATMENT SERIOUSLY AFFECTS THE LATER QUALITIES. THE STRENGTH OF CONCRETE IS NOT IMPROVED, ONLY THE REACTION IS ACCELERATED. THE COMPOSITION OF CONCRETE IS IMPORTANT FOR OBTAINING IMPROVED STRENGTH. IT IS POSSIBLE TO REDUCE THE EVAPORATION BY PLACING A HOOD ON THE MOLD, THE EXPANSION BY PRESETTING AND THE ANISOTROPY BY SCREWING A PLATE ON THE CONCRETE. /AUTHOR/
