Abstract:Carbonation of concrete is increased in the presence of a high percentage of granulated blast-furnace slag in the cement and is also enhanced after subjecting concrete to freezing and thawing cycles. Air entraining agents do not modify the carbonation when the concrete containing portland or cements with low-calcium fly ash and granulated blast-furnace slag (< 20 X) is subjected to freese-thaw cycles. Carbonation is increased in the cement containing 84 % of slag. Uncarbonated concrete resists freezing and thawing better than that carbonated previously.
