It was located in an aggressive marine environment.

Each measurement was corrected from radial measurements in a cylinder into carbonation depth measurements that would be obtained in a semi-infinite plane deptg 3 ].

This is due in part to the production of calcium carbonate, or calcite as it is more commonly known. Each web face, top and base flange surfaces were then calculated and recorded.

Carbonation Coefficients from Concrete Made with High-Absorption Limestone Aggregate

Secondly, it is well documented haedened the literature that the carbonation front in real-life concrete structures can be quite irregular and can occasionally exhibit maxima that extend far beyond the average profile[6]. A study of carbonation in non-hydraulic lime mortars.

Construction and Building Materials. Typical beam plan and cross-section with reinforcing and prestressing steel details Figure 2: For the present project, the application of the pH indicator phenolphthalein was deemed the most appropriate practical dept.

RILEM – Compendiums

The observations made in the previous paragraphs are clarified in Figures 4, 5 and 6, which show the graphical representation of the visible carbonation profile for each cross-section measured for Beams A, B and C respectively.

However, as concrete carbonation proceeds at a very low rate, the use of an accelerated carbonation chamber is required. In relation to the cross-section, greater carbonation was more likely towards the upper parts of the beam cross- section and at junctions. For example, exposure conditions such as prevailing winds, shelter from rain, internal or external location and geographic location such as an urban or coastal context can determine the depth of carbonation.

Advances in Materials Science and Engineering

Carbonation of reinforced concrete: The conditioning period was 80 days. The progression of the carbonation front appeared to have been influenced by the presence of aggregate in some locations Figure 8.

Investigations on the carbonation measuremrnt concrete. However, it may corrode if the protection is lost. The average and maximum carbonation depths for each surface eg. For the present study, the carbonation profile mostly follows the incidence of aggregate. Table 3 shows the results from the compressive strength, porosity tests, carbbonation fresh concrete slump.

Skip to main content. 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. The atmospheric carbonation coefficients are also presented in Table 5.

Concrete carbonation is the result of the reaction of hydrated cement compounds with atmospheric CO 2. A typical irregular carbonation profile Figure 8: The results are presented in this paper. However the majority of these reports show results for real-life concrete structures, often using average carbonation depths obtained from one or two small cores. The longitudinal web cracking was expected to influence significantly the development and depth of the carbonation front[26].

Chapman and Hall London ; In relation to the carbonation profiles observed for each beam meadurement, it is clear that preferential carbonation has occurred. Current Practice Sheet Hxrdened. Depth profiles of carbonates formed during natural carbonation.

Castillo for performing some of the tests reported in the paper. Passivation of Reinforcing Steel in Concrete. Scaled photographs of each concrete surface were taken prior to and after the application of the indicator. If the number of test sites is limited, then only a small percentage of the entire concrete surface is represented and thus the carbonation levels may be significantly under or over estimated, or be undiagnosed.

Her areas of interest include asset management, bridge inspection techniques, and the influence of corrosion on reinforced and prestressed concrete structures. The role of cracking in concrete is also known to influence the development and orientation of the carbonation profile[36], with Vaysburd et al.

Table 4 shows the results from the carbonation depth measurements. Carbonated surfaces are defined by surfaces unchanged in colour and less than pH 9. Carbonation depths had reached prestressing steel levels in some locations. Irregular profile are not unexpected[33], and the pattern is locally influenced by the impermeable nature of the coarse aggregate and the measurfment permeability properties of the cementitious material[31,34]. The present study highlights that carbonation can be influenced locally by geometry, environment, orientation, and properties of the concrete.

Zones of carbonation were observed around cracks but this was not always the case. Thomas Telford Publishing London ; Table of Contents Alerts. The accumulation of aggregate was observed to influence the carbonation profile B A C Figure 9: Once cured, the specimens were allowed to condition carbonatino lab environment prior to undergoing accelerated testing.

Maximum carbonation depths of 50mm were recorded in some locations, exceeding reinforcement depths and approaching the depth of the prestressing. As a result there is only limited statistical data for making asset management decisions. Whilst the results from the present investigation are more in agreement with the carbonation depths recorded in the report, the two sets of results are inconsistent and warrant further investigation.

Carbonation fronts were irregular, but were not always influenced by aggregate. Building Research Station; Measirement me on this computer. Concrete carbonation – a fresh look. Deeper measjrement was found with increasing height of the concree cross-section, particularly at junctions, and towards the more sheltered areas of the diaphragms.
