Le choix des matériaux utilisés dans la construction repose sur des critères techniques identifiables et quantifiables tels la résistance mécanique, le comportement chimique ou le transfert de chaleur, paramètres qui permettent non seulement de satisfaire les exigences opérationnelles de l'ouvrage, mais aussi d'en garantir la durabilité et la durée de vie utile attendues. Quoi qu'il en soit, ces critères ne sont aujourd’hui plus suffisants: énergie grise, analyse de cycle de vie, incidence sur l’environnement, qualité environnementale des constructions, etc. sont de nouveaux facteurs qui interviennent dans le caractère « durable » des constructions. L’ingénieur se doit désormais d'intégrer ces considérations dans le dimensionnement et la réalisation des ouvrages, ce qui constitue un réel challenge pour l’avenir. [less ▲]

Depuis plusieurs années, des recherches sont effectuées afin de substituer une partie du clinker, composant principal du ciment Portland, dont la production libère des quantités importantes de CO2, par les laitiers de haut-fourneau, les cendres volantes et/ou les fillers calcaires. Dans le projet CEMCALC I, la possibilité de remplacer une partie de ce clinker par du laitier de haut fourneau et du filler calcaire a été étudiée. Plusieurs compositions de ciment ternaire (clinker, laitier, filler) ont été étudiées, notamment vis-à-vis des attaques sulfatiques à 5°C. Des mesures de module d’élasticité dynamique, de vitesse sonore, ainsi que des analyses DRX et des observations au MEB ont été réalisées. Les ciments montrant la meilleure résistance aux attaques sulfatiques à 5°C sont ceux qui contiennent le plus de laitier. Les phases responsables de la dégradation des éprouvettes sont les croûtes secondaires de gypse, ainsi qu’une solution solide composée d’ettringite et de thaumasite. [less ▲]

Le béton est réputé durable. L’expérience de cette durabilité est toutefois fort limitée en termes d’échelle temporelle : nombreux sont les facteurs – internes et externes - qui peuvent amener une dégradation parfois très rapide du matériau. Fort heureusement, ces dégradations n’ont que très peu souvent d’effet irrémédiable sur le comportement structurel de l’ouvrage en béton. Les réparations permettent en général de prolonger la durée de vie des structures, en réhabilitant le comportement du matériau : l’adhérence du système de protection ou de réparation constitue dans ce cas une condition nécessaire mais pas toujours suffisante. Définir les conditions d’ « appétence » est la première étape du processus : quelles sont les conditions minimales à rencontrer pour que les matériaux « adhèrent », dans un environnement donné ? Ces conditions sont-elles suffisantes pour garantir la durabilité des réparations ? De plus, l’évaluation de l’adhérence pose problème en soi : traction, cisaillement, torsion sont autant de sollicitations censées représenter le comportement réel d’une interface : quel type d’essai employer ? Comment allier facilité et efficacité ? Laboratoire et chantier ? [less ▲]

The protection of concrete historical structures is a challenge for the coming years. Hydrophobic treatment may induce a delay in degradations progress as well as a protection against water penetration. Existing products - mainly silane and siloxane based – have been submitted to different ageing processes including UV radiation, moistening cycles, thermal shocks, freeze-thaw cycles, carbonation and efficiency has been evaluated on the base of contact angle, vapour and chloride permeability and, capillarity absorption. Investigation results clearly show a good behaviour of hydrophobic treatments under main ageing conditions. [less ▲]

Granulated blast furnace slag has been widely used as a partial substitute for Portland cement in many applications because of advantages which include cost reduction, reduction in heat evolution and improvement of durability properties. However, the effectiveness of slag depends on its hydraulic reactivity. In this paper, the results of an experimental study on the effect of slag with low hydraulicity on the mechanical and durability properties of concrete and the performance of mortar under sulfate attack are discussed. Special attention is given to gas permeability and water absorption of slag concrete. The durability of slag concrete is improved at long term at low Water/Binder ratio. Sulfate resistance of mortar is improved by slag replacement up to 30%. [less ▲]

Results of an investigation to determine the effects of metakaolin additions on transport properties of mortars are reported. Comparisons are made to ordinary Portland cement (OPC) to determine the influence of addition and replacement percentage. Cement is replaced on a mass basis of 5-20% for metakaolin. A mixture with natural kaolin is also studied. The transport properties and chemical behaviors are analyzed by means of chloride diffusion tests and sulfate immersion. Obserdvations after more than 100 days are used to prescribe mixtures that reduce the rate of chloride diffusion and sulfate degradation. For metakaolin, the optimum seems to be between 10% and 15% with regard to inhibition effect on chloride diffusion and sulfate attack. (C) 2003 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved. [less ▲]

REASONS FOR PERFORMING STUDY: There is a clinical impression that tetracaine hydrochloride (THCl) eyedrops is a suitable topical anaesthetic in horses. OBJECTIVE: To determine the duration of corneal anaesthesia following instillation of multiple doses and 2 concentrations of THCl in 10 healthy horses. METHODS: The corneal touch threshold (CTT) was determined, in both eyes, before (basal CTT) and after application of one drop of 0.5% THCl, 2 drops at a 1 min interval of 0.5% THCl or one drop of 1% THCl. CTT was measured in mm every 5 min until complete recovery of the basal CTT. Treatments were separated by an interval of at least one week. RESULTS: Corneal sensitivity was significantly reduced from baseline values for 30, 60 and 50 min after application of one drop of 0.5% THCl, 2 drops of 0.5% THCl and one drop of 1% THCl, respectively. Mean maximal anaesthetic effects, corresponding to a CTT of 0 mm, lasted 5.5, 16 and 15.25 min and maximal anaesthetic effect was present in 55, 90 and 80% of eyes, 5 min after application of one drop of 0.5% THCl, 2 drops of 0.5% THCl and one drop of 1% THCl, respectively. CONCLUSIONS: The application of a second drop or the use of more concentrated eyedrops significantly increases duration of both anaesthesia and maximal anaesthetic effect. POTENTIAL RELEVANCE: Duration of corneal anaesthesia following tetracaine instillation was established enabling a better use when performing diagnostic and therapeutic procedures. Comparison of tetracaine with other ocular anaesthetics needs to be published in the future. [less ▲]

Introduction Perception of duration has a major impact on the child’s ability to manage everyday life. Usually, the perception of time is considered in its sequential component. To our knowledge, possible semiological markers for the capacity to apprehend temporal duration have not yet been explored. There are thus no existing tools either for its evaluation (in everyday life) or for the description of its development during childhood. We are thus largely in the dark about how the perception of duration develops during childhood. Hypothesis 1) It is possible to track perception of duration using semiological markers in everyday life; 2) Children with developmental disorders can be expected to develop difficulties in this domain. Method We designed a questionnaire for parents using a Likert scale. The questionnaire was administered to 2 samples from 2:6 to 13 years: 827 in a general population and 297 in a mixed-psychopathological population recruited from the Mental Health Services network. We carried out a multinomial logistic regression and used percentiles curves (P5,50,95). Results In the general population, perception of duration is gradually acquired and full competence is attained by 9 years. The apprehension of sequential time is achieved by 4 years. In the psychopathological sample, mean perception of temporal duration is delayed by 18 months and significant difficulties remain even at 13 years. The apprehension of sequential time is also delayed: even at 13 years it remains low (at percentile 95). We have found no sex-related differences. Discussion Perception of duration is an important developmental feature which has not been taken into account until now. Semiological markers can be used to differentiate typically developing children from clinical populations as to their respective capacities to perceive temporal duration. [less ▲]
