Abstract:This paper reports the long term results of experiments carried out since 1969 to investigate the carbonation phenomena in concrete with and without fly ash. They were carried out for different mix proportions by varying cement factor, replacement ratio of fly ash and water-cement ratio. The specimens were cured indoors and outdoors after water curing for periods of 1, 7, 28 and 91 days. It was found that the carbonation and the corrosion is considerably affected by mix proportions, initial curing period in water and exposure conditions. Depths of the carbonation of concrete cured indoors increase with age, short initial curing period in water and high water-cement ratio. Corrosion of reinforcing bar embeded occurred due to the carbonation.
