This paper develops a novel lattice diffusive model to quantitatively study the chloride diffusion coefficient in unsaturated cementitious materials, in which the pore voxels are redistributed to make a better representation of a real microstructure of hardened cement paste. Considering the hierarchical microstructure and different drying...

Chloride diffusion in concrete is one of the key parameters of durability design for structure. Existing methods of reducing the chloride diffusion such as decreasing water-cement ratio and adding mineral admixtures often lead to increase the risk of concrete cracking. In this study, we focused on mitigating the permeation of chloride ions in...

Strain-hardening cement-based composites (SHCC) are high-performance fiber-reinforced composites with promising durability properties due to their considerably enhanced crack control under tensile load conditions. The knowledge of the transport properties of such composites in cracked state are crucial for estimating their durability...

The time dependency of the chloride diffusion coefficient, the so-called ageing coefficient, of fly ash concrete has been investigated. The effect of origin of the fly ash as well as the origin and strength level of the cement combined with the fly ash, has been determined. Results obtained using the RCM-method on samples aged up to 5 years...

Service life of concrete infrastructure is severely compromised because of chloride-induced corrosion and measuring the chloride content is crucial to determine the remaining service life. DuraCrete provides a chloride ingress model based on Fick’s 2nd law. Although the diffusion coefficient is modelled as a time-dependent variable, the...

The widespread application of alkali-activated fly ash/slag (AAFS) concrete requires satisfaction of a series of performance criteria both from its early age properties (e.g. workability, strength) and long-term stability. In this study, long-term (till 180 days) natural chloride diffusion tests were conducted to evaluate the chloride diffusion...

Properties of concrete are, to a large extent, dependent on the properties of its binding constituent, hydrated cement paste. Therefore, knowledge of properties of hydrated cement paste is crucial for predicting concrete behaviour. This paper presents an experimentally informed approach for modelling elastic and transport properties of cement...

Transport of chlorides is one of the most critical factors determining the service life of concrete structures under ocean environments, and diffusion is usually regarded as the major mechanism for the transport of chloride ions into concrete. As chloride diffusivity is affected by temperature, most existing service life prediction models use...

The error function solution of Fick’s second law assumes the constant surface chloride concentration, when it is used to calculate the apparent average chloride diffusion coefficient in concrete during the exposure period. However, the surface chloride concentration in concrete often vary with time. The purpose of this study is to investigate...

Reinforced concrete (RC) structures may suffer from serious durability problems during long-term service. To investigate the deterioration of RC structures subjected to the dual attacks of chlorides and sulfates, this study proposes a coupled model for external sulfate attack (ESA) and its effect on chloride binding and diffusion. To account for...

Conceptual analysis is performed to examine the effects of pore features on the water continuity in unsaturated porous systems. The roles of pore features in relative chloride diffusion coefficient (D<sub>rc</sub>) of mortar specimens at various degrees of water saturation (S<sub>w</sub>) were studied based on mercury intrusion porosimetry...

An analytical model for predicting the relative chloride diffusion coefficient in cementitious materials at different degrees of water saturation is presented in this paper. The model is developed based on the Nernst-Einstein equation and conductivity of cementitious electrolyte, as well as on moisture distribution in the pore structure. Good...

Chloride-induced reinforcement corrosion, caused by chloride diffusion in the unsaturated concrete cover, is a major durability problem of concrete structures. Current concepts for concrete mixture design and for service life prediction are generally based on the understanding of the chloride diffusion coefficient of saturated concrete. This...

Experiments have been carried out to study the influence of moisture condition, including moisture content and its distribution, on the chloride diffusion in partially saturated ordinary Portland cement mortar. The mortar samples with water-to-cement (w/c) ratios of 0.4, 0.5 and 0.6, cured for 1 year, were preconditioned to uniform water...
