Effect of the Randomness of the Relative Humidity on the Phenomenon of Carbonation of the Reinforced Concrete
This paper deals with shows the randomness effect of the relative humidity on the carbonation phenomenon of the reinforced concrete. This analysis concentrates on the evaluation of carbonation depth (Xc) of the reinforced concrete from a probabilistic analysis. Monte Carlo simulations are realized under the assumption that the relative humidity at the surface of the concrete is random variables with a lognormal probability distribution.
