This Federal project has been started in September 2009 by the BCRC. In this second part of the study, the CRIC-OCCN has been associated to apply its knowledge on the setting behaviour of ordinary concretes to the setting of refractory concretes. Different techniques available at the CRIC-OCCN are promising:
- An electric 4 points electrical resistivity method developed recently at the CRIC-OCCN;
- Ultrasonic, calorimetric and penetration measurements;
- Conventional mechanical measurements as for example Kelly-Briant or others.
The non-destructive tests, that can be used in situ, will have our preference.
