Advances in Materials Science and Engineering

These zones were not measuremenh to the concrete surface, but were found adjacent to the ducts containing corroding prestressing steel. In the event of experiments with two different external CO 2 concentrationsusing separate specimens of the same concrete mixture, the time to reach a given carbonation depth in both specimens would be, for concentrationand, forthus, solving forsolving forfrom 4 and 7substituting 8 in 9lf forand then, the average carbonation coefficients obtained in 3 were converted to atmospheric carbonation coefficient using This reaction is summarised carobnation Equation 1.

Carbon dioxide levels due to pollution were not significant at this location[18]. Carbonation depths had reached prestressing steel levels in some locations. Scaled photographs of each concrete surface were taken prior to and after the application of the indicator. Irregular profile are not unexpected[33], and the pattern is locally influenced by the impermeable nature of the coarse aggregate and the local permeability properties of the cementitious material[31,34].

In order to investigate the development and characteristics of the carbonation profile in a real life structure, three precast, post-tensioned concrete beams from a demolished 45 year old bridge were segmented and subjected to a detailed investigation, amongst other analysis[15].

Mostly the studies have been confined to the analysis of structural elements that have not been in service. Better understanding of these effects and their subsequent influences will require further research, preferentially on actual structures and taking account of geometry, orientation and environmental conditions.


Introduction Concrete is the most used material for infrastructure development. The average and maximum carbonation depths for each surface eg. Biondini F, Frangopol DM, editors. Abstract Normal aggregates employed in concrete have absorption levels in the range of 0.

In some locations, the recorded maximum carbonation depths were at shear reinforcement and prestressing steel depths. Usually, carbonation is modeled as where is the time of exposure, is the carbonation depth at timeand is the carbonation coefficient.

These measurements are representative of only a small percentage of the entire concrete surface and rarely give insight into the overall carbonation measurementt. However, the carbonation rate depends fo several factors [ 2 ] such as the type and amount of cement, porosity of the material [ 3 ], and amount of pozzolanic additions [ 4 ]. Influence of marine micro-climates on carbonation of reinforced concrete buildings. Figure 9 are inconsistent with the previous observation.

This is due in part to the production of calcium carbonate, or calcite as it is more commonly known.

The protection may be lost due to chloride attack or due to the neutralization of the concrete pore solution surrounding the reinforcing steel. Investigating the correlation between pre- and post-demolition assessments for precast, post-tensioned beams in service for 45 years. For comparable real-life coastal structures assessed for carbonation, K values ranged between 1 and 8[12,29].

Average carbonation depths for all beams in most sample locations were significantly lower in comparison to maximum results. Measuring the depth of carbonation. Carbonation depth measurements and standard deviations mm. In relation to the carbonation profiles observed for each beam cross-section, it is clear that preferential carbonation has occurred.


B – Sorell Causeway Bridge project file; c Thomas Telford Publishing London ; Carbonated surfaces are defined by surfaces unchanged in colour and less than pH 9. Trans Tech Publications; However at other crack locations, no colour change was detected Figure Instances where carbonation adjacent to cracking was not detected by the phenolphthalein indicator were reviewed further.

A survey of the durability performance of post-tensioning tendons. Cnocrete rate of carbonation will slow over time due to the accumulation of calcite and the subsequent reduction in carbon dioxide diffusion[3].

Monitoring of Steel Corrosion in Concrete. She has gained work experience in various sectors of engineering, including consulting engineering and construction. Carbonation of the concrete in itself is not a detrimental process; in fact it septh known to increase strength and reduce the permeability of the concrete[4]. Building Research Station; An example of a beam cross-section sprayed with Phenolphthalein The depth of the carbonation front was recorded at several locations around the perimeter of the beam cross-sections and on exposed core surfaces in accordance with the RILEM recommendation.
