Modelling and simulation of concrete carbonation: competition of several carbonation reactions

Abstract

Concrete carbonation, i.e. the reaction of alkaline species (inside the concrete) with atmospheric carbon dioxide, is one of the major physicochemical processes compromising the service life of concrete structures. While the main carbonation reaction is that of calcium hydroxide, other constituents such as calcium silicates or calcium-silcate hydrates in… (More)
