After deptg the carbonation measurements, the remaining portion of the concrete cylinders was placed back in the chamber. The average carbonation coefficient was obtained from. Carbonation profiles were predominantly irregular Figure 7. Initially it was thought these cracks were associated with the load testing conducted on the beams prior to the carbonation assessment.

Note the strong colour response of the grout.

The follow matters were investigated: The longitudinal web cracking was expected to influence dwpth the development measuremen depth of the carbonation front[26].

Advances in Materials Science and Engineering. Materials Science Forum VolumesPart 2. Carbonation depths had reached prestressing steel levels in some locations.

Table 1 provides a summary of the condition of each beam. Service life prediction of a concrete bridge structure subjected to carbonation. By day 51, mixtures 0. View at Google Scholar E.


Standards Australia Sydney ; Carbonation depths in structural-quality concrete: Thus, the objective of this cocnrete was to study the carbonation rates of concrete specimens made with high-absorption limestone aggregate.

The atmospheric carbonation coefficients are also presented in Table 5. Carbonation of concrete exposed to hot and arid climate.

Normal aggregates used in concrete have absorption levels in the range of 0. Concrete is the most used material for infrastructure development.

However, the carbonation profile at other locations e. In carbonatiob 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].

A study of carbonation in non-hydraulic lime mortars.

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 present study highlights that carbonation can be influenced locally by geometry, environment, orientation, and properties of the concrete.

Her areas of interest include asset management, bridge inspection techniques, and the influence of corrosion on reinforced and prestressed concrete structures.

Introduction Concrete is the most used material for infrastructure development. However, there are two major limitations with this approach; the first being the number of inspection holes that can be exposed within time constraints and in limiting damage to the concrete surface itself. The majority hardende results from the present study hafdened with the literature. Surfaces with a deep pink colour change indicate the pH is greater than 9. Most of the many studies reported in the literature about the rate of carbonation and the development of the carbonation profile are laboratory studies[].


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.

The data is presented in Table 5. Report of the Building Research Board for the Year Table 3 shows the results from the compressive strength, porosity tests, and fresh concrete slump. Whilst an indication of the depth of carbonated concrete has been achieved, the results provided no information on the extent of the carbonation, where carbonation was most significant, or whether the levels recorded were indeed the maxima.
