Résumé / Abstract

This paper deals with two experimental methods to determine carbonation profiles in concrete. Gammadensimetry is a non-destructive test method able to measure the total penetrated CO2 and to monitor the carbonation process during laboratory accelerated tests. The second method is thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) supplemented with chemical analysis (CA): as TGA is performed on a small mortar sample not representative of the whole tested concrete, CA is needed to proportion the sample cement content, the sand content and to correct the TGA results becoming thus representative of the concrete mix. Consequently, TGA-CA gives accurate quantitative profiles in carbonated cementitious materials. Results are reported for an ordinary Portland cement paste, and three concrete mixes, containing siliceous or calcareous aggregates. The CO2 mass loss due to carbonation occurs from 530 to 950 °C, which overlaps the temperature range of the calcareous aggregate dissociation. To solve the problem, the origin of CaCO3 is carefully analyzed. Calcium carbonate ensuing from C-S-H carbonation dissociates in a lower temperature range than the more stable one ensuing from portlandite carbonation and from limestone, which enables C-S-H carbonation to be distinguished from calcareous aggregates. Therefore, TGA-CA allows the CaCO3 ensuing from C-S-H carbonation to be measured and to calculate the portlandite degraded by carbonation. Thus, the total calcium carbonates profiles can be deduced even when calcareous aggregates is present in the concrete mix.
