An Experimental Study on the Alkali-Recovery Performance of Impregnating Alkalization Agent for Deteriorated Concrete by Carbonation ;;;;;
The low-durability performance of concrete structure occurs by interactive deterioration factors. In particular, carbonation increased with its time elapse is known as the general manner of deterioration characteristics. Recently, the fundamental researches of the carbonation mechanism, besides method and technique for durability improvement of deteriorated structure are advanced actively. So in this paper, alkali-recovery and maintenance performance when the impregnating alkalization agents are used, are compared and examined quantitively with the basis of past proposed study. As a result, alkali-recovery performance be ensured by impregnating alkalization agent on the carbonated concrete which has low pH by accelerated carbonation test. And alkali maintenance performance was effected by the finishing materials on the alkali recovered concrete.
