Abstract: Cement hydration induces water consumption which induces a reduction of the capillary pressure in the concrete. The equilibrium of pressure implies an increase of the granular stress which is able to transmit shear stress to any support. Slipforming process is characterized by a continuous moving of the formwork, which creates adhesion phenomena and potential damages which have to be assessed and ideally reduced. Experimental devices have been designed in order to evaluate the friction at this interface during the first hydration period. The role of pore water pressure is investigated and controlled in order to separate the influence of pore water pressure and hydrates formation.
