Introduction Concrete is the most used material for infrastructure development. However at other crack locations, no colour change was detected Figure In some locations, the recorded maximum carbonation depths were at shear reinforcement and prestressing steel depths. Table 3 shows the results from the compressive strength, porosity tests, and fresh concrete slump. As the pH drops, the passive layer becomes less effective, leaving the steel susceptible to hardenef.

Guide to Concrete Repair and Protection. Whilst carbonation depth measurements are commonplace in most field inspections, it is evident from the present project that only hzrdened information can realistically be obtained, and that the level of carbonation can be underestimated.

Cement and Concrete Association UK ; As a result there is only limited statistical data for making asset management decisions. Chapman and Hall London ; Its causes and management. Therefore, the objective of this investigation was to study the carbonation rates of concrete specimens made with high-absorption limestone aggregate. Journal of Materials in Civil Hsrdened. The detection of carbonated concrete has become commonplace in detailed field inspections of structural concrete.

These zones were not connected to the concrete surface, but were found adjacent to the ducts containing cppc-18 prestressing steel.


Tidal splash, salt spray, the sheltering effect of the diaphragms and the ensuing measuremeny towards the tops of the beams influencing temperature and relative humidity all are likely to have influenced these patterns.

Regarding the physical appearance of the carbonation profile observed on each cross-section, it is noted that all profiles showed an irregular profile with occasional deeper maxima. The carbonation results are summarised in Table 2.

Electrochemical Methods in Corrosion Research V. The measurement of carbonation through chloride drill holes usually is not recommended due to the dust residue of deeper concrete, falsely implying the pH is higher than it may actually be.

Experimental investigation and mathematical modeling of the concrete carbonation problem. Monitoring of Steel Corrosion in Concrete. For obvious reasons, asset owners are xoncrete in the identification of concrete structures at risk of carbonation and also in monitoring the progression of the carbonation front pf the reinforcement.

Cement and Concrete Composites. Carbonation fronts were irregular, but were not always influenced by aggregate. Moreno, Carbonation of blended cement concretes [Ph.

In relation to the cross-section, greater carbonation was more likely towards the upper parts of the beam cross- section and at junctions. Understanding, investigation and repair.

The author is indebted to J. A survey of the durability performance of post-tensioning tendons. Note the strong colour kf of the grout. Based on the carbonation observed in the report with a maximum carbonation of 19mm after 37 years, it is estimated that the K value for the concrete beams may lie between 3 and 4.

Advances in Materials Science and Engineering

Song G, Shayan A, editors. The rate of carbonation will slow over time due neasurement the accumulation of calcite and the subsequent reduction in carbon dioxide diffusion[3]. The northern facing webs from Beams A and C and the southern facing web of Beam B exhibited greater carbonation than the respective opposing web faces.


The measurement of the depth of carbonation in reinforced and prestressed concrete structures is typically determined via freshly cut cores or broken concrete surfaces often adjacent to superficial evidence of corrosion and sprayed with a pH indicator phenolphthalein solution. Advances in Materials Science and Engineering. The majority of results from the present study agreed with the literature. It is clear that further research is required to investigate the localised effects of aggregate and cementitious material on the progression of the carbonation front.

Historical documents and project information unpublished. Crushed limestone of high absorption was used as coarse and fine aggregate Table 1. All beams were of solid construction with minimal voids and high compressive strength and cement content[18]. Each measurement was corrected from radial measurements in a cylinder into carbonation depth measurements that would be obtained in a semi-infinite plane [ 3 ].

Concrete cores from various locations in each beam were also obtained for carbonation testing. carboantion

Concrete is the most used material for infrastructure development. Three prestressed concrete beams of various condition were set aside from the bridge demolition for detailed examination and load testing, as reported previously[16,17]. Indexed in Science Citation Index Expanded. Average carbonation depths for all beams in most sample locations were significantly lower in comparison to maximum results.

The corrosion of steel in reinforced concrete in German. After applying the acid-base indicator, the measurements were performed using a digital caliper.
