Abstract: An inverse analysis and an optimization method have been used to fit the effective chloride diffusion coefficient and the chloride binding isotherm parameters from experimental total chloride concentration profiles. The penetration of chloride is simulated by a multi-species transport model for saturated conditions. Two types of binding isotherm are studied: a Freundlich isotherm (written F-isotherm) and an adsorption isotherm related to ion exchange and completed by Friedel’s salt formation (double-layer based isotherm, written DL-isotherm). The relevance of the choice of the binding isotherm is studied and the influence of the initial OH- concentration (pH-value) on the penetration of chloride ions is analyzed.
