Comprehensive modeling of chloride ion and water ingress into concrete considering thermal and carbonation state for real climate

This article presents a comprehensive modeling of temperature, carbonation, water and chloride ions transport in cover concrete using the transport model "TransChlor". The TransChlor transport model employs weather data and chloride ion concentrations present on the concrete surface to predict the temporal and spatial evolution of the presence of chloride ion concentrations in the cover concrete pores. The main features of the TransChlor model are presented and validated.
