A survey of the durability performance of post-tensioning tendons. 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. Land Transport New Zealand; Beam C was in poor condition with longitudinal cracking of maximum width 20mm wide following the parabolic trajectory of the post-tensioning ducts in Bays 4 and 5, typical of strand corrosion in well bonded, grouted tendons[19].

Carbonation coefficient has been modeled using the CO 2 diffusion coefficient in concretethe CO 2 concentrationand the concentration of hydrated calcium compounds [ 3 ]: A study of carbonation in non-hydraulic lime mortars. For obvious reasons, asset owners are interested in the identification of concrete structures at risk of carbonation and also in monitoring the progression of the carbonation front towards the reinforcement. Due to the fact that mixture 0.

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 carbonatino the levels recorded were indeed the maxima. Maximum carbonation depths of 50mm were recorded in some locations, exceeding reinforcement depths and approaching the depth of the prestressing.


The current paper presents unique information on the progression of the overall carbonation front measursment cross-sections taken from three year-old precast, prestressed concrete T-beams located in an aggressive marine environment.

The threat of carbonation lies in the reduction of the pH of the affected concrete, where the production of calcite involves the conversion of the hydrated cement product meaeurement hydroxide present in the pore water, a compound mewsurement helps maintain the high alkalinity of the concrete. Influence of marine micro-climates on carbonation of reinforced concrete buildings.

Investigating the correlation between pre- and post-demolition assessments for precast, post-tensioned beams in service for 45 years. In addition, a first carbonation depth measurement was performed using the external control specimens. These zones were not connected to the concrete surface, but were found adjacent to the ducts containing corroding prestressing steel.

Spalling and some rust staining were observed on adjoining concrete surfaces. Usually, carbonation is modeled as where is the time of exposure, is the carbonation depth at timeand is the carbonation coefficient.

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.

However, as concrete carbonation proceeds at a very low rate, the use of an accelerated hardenex chamber is required. The follow matters were investigated: For the current study, the majority of locations with longitudinal cracking coincided with deeper carbonation, especially for the lower duct in Beam C Figure These measurements are representative of only a small percentage of the entire concrete surface and rarely give insight into the overall carbonation profile.

For Beams B and C, two isolated areas of reduced pH were detected by the phenolphthalein indicator an example is shown in Mrasurement Swedish Cement and Concrete Research Institute; Deeper carbonation was measured at the junction between the upper flange and the webs. This is due in part to the production of calcium carbonate, or calcite as it is more commonly known.
