Concrete Carbonation - Building Defect Analysis

Aug 20, 2017  Carbonation starts on the surface of the concrete and can ultimately reach the depth of the steel reinforcement within the concrete. Reinforcement bars are required in most concrete structures as concrete is strong in compression but weak in tension, therefore reinforcement is added to provide tensile strength.

Carbonation of Concrete - In-depth Overview - Structural Guide

Jan 01, 2021  It is a process of reacting calcium hydroxide in the concrete with carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and creates a calcium carbonate and water. Ca (OH) 2 + CO 2 → CaCO 3 + H 2 O. This process starts with the concrete surface and it gradually moves towards the inner of the concrete. Carbonation of concrete is a slow and continuous process.

Carbonation of concrete

Carbonation is a slow and continuous process that progresses from the outer surface moving inwards. Over the lifecycle of concrete, carbonation will result in the reabsorption of around a third of the CO2 emitted when making cement, significantly reducing the whole-life CO2 footprint of both the cement and the concrete for which it is used.

Carbonation depth - Concrete

Carbonation depth is assessed using a solution of phenolphthalein indicator that appears pink in contact with alkaline concrete with pH values in excess of 9 and colourless at lower levels of pH. The test is most commonly carried out by spraying the indicator on freshly exposed surfaces of concrete broken from the structure or on split cores.

Abstract. Reinforced concrete is generally a very durable structural material and very little repair work is usually needed. However, its durability can be affected by a variety of causes, including those of design and construction faults, use of inferior materials and exposure to aggressive environments.

CARBONATION OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES - The Constructor

Carbonation of concrete Structures. The microstructure of concrete is such that it has capillary pores to the extent of 28%. The extent of pores depends upon quality of concrete and the presence of water at the time of mixing of concrete. Making more dense concrete with less water/cement ratio reduces the amount of pores.
