Effect of Micro-Climatic Condition on Durability of Concrete
Abstract:One of the most common deterioration causes of concrete structures over the world is chloride ions attacks. Thus, service life modeling of concrete is a crucial issue in civil engineering society. Many studies on the durability of concrete have been accomplished, however, it is not easy to review literatures about environmental analysis. Since the durability of concrete depends on the properties of the surface concrete, micro-climatic condition which influences on surface concrete realistically should be considered. This study is devoted to analysis the micro-climatic condition of concrete structures, based on the in-situ monitoring of weather in marine environment. The theoretical effect of degree of saturation on chloride diffusivity of concrete is also examined. It is expected that the result of this work should be effective for the prediction of chloride profile of marine concrete.
