This paper presents the first experiments which have been done to support the bases of a thermomechanical model coupled with damage and to identify the characteristics parameters needed to describe the evolution of mechanical properties. We present a part of the results obtained and particularly a procedure to define the setting time which corresponds to the solidification of the material.
