Preface

Dcpuis plus de dix ans. la profession fran~aisc du bfuimcnt ct des truvaux publics a conseuti un cnorme effort de reconversion vcrs les marches extcricurs, et en particulicr, vcrs lcs pays en voic de developpement anglophones : Afrique, Moyen-Orient, Extreme-Orient. ..

L' Amerique du Nord, cllc aussi, a rente nos bureaux d 'etudes et entrepriscs, ct certaines implantations nux (:tats-Unis ou au Canada constituent nujourdhui d'indcniables reussitcs.

D'autre part, l'Europe technique prend corps: lacte unique, ratifie par notre parlcmcnt. les curocodcs et euronormes sont des etapcs irrevcrsibles vers un veritable rnarche cornmun. qui ne devra connaitre aucune emrave a la libre circulation des produits, aussi bien que des personnes, Malgre la volonte affirrnee par nos autorites nationales de maintenir I'usage international de la langue Irancaise, force est de reconnuitrc la preeminence de la langue anglaise : les reunions techniques se deroulen I rnaintcnant en anglais ct lcs disparitions du CEB (Cornilc CUfOinternational du beton) et de la FIP (Federation internationale de la prccontraintc) all profit de la FIB nont fait qu'uggravcr une situation dcjil bien compromise pour la Irancophonic.

Entin, nos scientitiques et chcrcheurs, sils veulent fairc connaitrc leurs travaux dans Ie monde cntier, doivent se rcsoudrc il publier en anglais : en effct, il suffit de parcourir les references bibliographiques contenues dans les articles publics a I'etrunger pour constatcr line absence il peu pres complete de tout ecrit en langue francaise.

Face il ccuc situation. un lexique specialise dans Ie dornuinc till genic civil constitue pour un nornbrc croissant de professionncls un outil
