Tiivistelmä

Evaluating the propagation period for reinforcement corrosion in concrete facades is an important but complex task which contains a high level of uncertainty. Corrosion current intensity during the propagation period have been measured in a large number of studies and there is a general consensus in regard to factors affecting carbonation induced corrosion. Hence, a proper evaluation of hygrothermal conditions in concrete facade becomes crucial. In this study a method to calculate the corrosion propagation period was validated based upon a field survey of prefabricated concrete facades in large-panel apartment buildings. The method combines existing corrosion propagation models and the Delphin dynamic hygrothermal simulation tool, and takes into consideration material properties, carbonation depth, concrete cover depth, indoor and outdoor climate loads. With the proposed method, propagation consists of a time that is required for a concrete cover to begin cracking and a further expansion of the crack to open to 0.3 mm in width. As a result, the method is validated via the correlation between measured and calculated propagation periods across a range of twenty years. The sensitivity of the results are also studied. The method allows for an evaluation to be carried out on degradation, residual service life, and the need for the renovation of reinforced concrete facades.
