Reinforced concrete is a key element of the architectural evolution and has been specifically involved in the development of Catholic Church architecture, particularly during the second part of the XXth century. This article focuses on the Saint-Vincent Church, Liege district, Belgium. With concrete as major building material, this was built in only 20 months, from 1928 to 1930. This monumental building, from Neo Byzantine style, however presents some degradations. A visual inspection, as well as non destructive and laboratory tests, are presented and analysed. They help to make a clear diagnosis and to assess hypothesis on the real state of this high-quality architectural building. Moreover, specific investigations have been realized on a special mortar used for wall construction: Pauchot reinforced artificial stone. [less ▲]

Élément clé de l'évolution architecturale, le béton armé a participé à l'évolution de l'architecture religieuse catholique en particulier. Depuis sa découverte au XIXe siècle, ce matériau inventé, économique et résistant au feu, a cependant montré ses limites: fissures, épaufrures, désintégration. Il paraît donc nécessaire de s'inquiéter de l'état actuel des églises, témoins de l'évolution architecturale, mais aussi points de repère d'un quartier ou d’un village. Dans l'arrondissement de Liège, neuf églises paroissiales en béton ont été identifiées. Pour chacune d'entre elles, une inspection visuelle a été menée. Cet examen visuel, qui ne constitue qu'une première étape dans une démarche de restauration ou de rénovation, a été précédé de recherches documentaires destinées à connaître l'histoire des églises et à ainsi mieux comprendre leur état. Cet article s'intéresse à une église de Liège, en particulier : l'église Saint-Vincent, située à l'entrée de la ville. Construite en vingt mois à peine, de 1928 à 1930, cet édifice monumental montre actuellement des épaufrures, des fissures et des traces d'humidité. L'inspection visuelle, ainsi que les essais en laboratoire et l'examen au radar qui ont suivi, ont permis d'émettre des hypothèses quant aux dégradations qui affectent cet édifice à la qualité architecturale reconnue.

Reinforced concrete is a key element of the architectural evolution and has been specifically involved in the development of religious architecture. Since its discovery in the nineteenth century, this invented material, economic and fire resistant, however showed its limits: cracks, spalling and disintegration are some of the degradations we may observe today. It therefore seems necessary to worry about the current state of churches: these monuments are indeed the testimony of architectural evolution but also landmarks for the neighborhood. In Liege district, Belgium, nine parish churches have been identified as mainly concrete based. For each church, a visual inspection has been realized: this overview let us to make an assessment of the monument, with regard to concrete and reinforced concrete situation. This inspection is the first step for further investigations included into a restoration or renovation process. [less ▲]
