Association - PhD - Development of mesoscale hydro-chemo-mechanical (HMC) modeling...
21st September 2018


The main aim of this project is to develop a robust computational framework for investigating the hydro-chemo-mechanical aspect of concrete carbonation at meso-scale.


The existing reinforced structures and infrastructure are under continuous deterioration due to environmental actions. Carbonation is one of the most common causes of concrete deterioration as it induces chemical changes in cement paste microstructure, can cause shrinkage and cracking and can also lead to reinforcement corrosion. Reliable estimation of the extent of carbonation and its consequences on...
