Accelerated Carbonation of Concrete
Structures that use Portland cement tend to use steel-bar reinforcement.
Carbonation process is the chemical reaction between CO2 and the hydration compounds of cement which causes the reduction of the ph which in turn causes the passivation layer around the steel to break down, exposing reinforcement steel to water and air, bringing the steel to rust.
This test accelerates carbonation in a controlled environment by creating atmosphere involving:
The concentration of CO2 gas — This is an especially important factor for concrete used in cities with large amounts of pollution.
Humidity — It is preferable for humidity to be at 50%-70%. There is less water with higher humidity. Water inhibits CO2 diffusion when higher.
Temperature — In hotter environments, there is a higher carbonation rate.
Water to cement ratio — this determines the pore system of the concrete and degree of hydration.
