Paper Title:
Simple Approach for Computing Chloride Diffusivity of (Non)Carbonated Concrete
  Abstract

The purpose of this study is to establish a simple approach to compute the chloride diffusivity of (non)carbonated concrete. The chloride diffusivity of concrete should is defined, based on engineering and scientific knowledge of cement and concrete materials. In this paper, parameters affecting the chloride diffusivity, such as the diffusivity in pore solution, tortuosity, micro-structural properties of hardened cement paste, volumetric portion of aggregate, are taken into consideration in the calculation of the chloride diffusivity of noncarbonated concrete. For carbonated concrete, reduced porosity due to carbonation is calculated and used for calculating the chloride diffusivity. The results are compared with experimental data and previous research works.
