Description:

The institute disposes of the equipment for accelerated tests of materials corrosion in gaseous aggressive environment. With the use of developed simulation model of carbonation it possible from experimentally obtained carbonation rate data to determine main carbonation parameters: carbon dioxide diffussion coefficient and the maximum carbon dioxide intake in a material.

Proposal:

accelerated tests, methodology of determination of material parameters necessary for design of renovation, determination of data for calculation, determination of probable trends and their development.

Inovation:

Replacement of contemporary empirical approaches by methodology based on detailed modelling.

Application:

Diagnostics of deffects and renovation of buildings.

State:

Nowadays the influence of technological measures applied during the production on the speed and extent of carbonation is investigated.

Cooperation:

Contract.
