Article Preview

Recently, Reinforced Concrete(RC) is used in most buildings. However, steel bars in concrete cause corrosion through carbonation. Furthermore, corrosion shortens the life span of RC structures. Therefore, the surface-finishes such as restraint for penetration and diffusion of CO2 were used to lengthen the life span of RC structures. This study attempted to verify the restraining effect on a carbonation job according to the applied surface-finishes using an FEM analysis. This study also evaluated the restraining effect of carbonation on other surface-finishes with the process proposed in this study.
