Carbonation Depth Model and Prediction of Hybrid Fiber Fly Ash Concrete
The concrete is weakly alkaline, the alkalinity of the concrete will be reduced after being carbonized, and the protective effect of the concrete on the steel bar will be weakened, even leading to corrosion of the steel bar. In this paper, fly ash is used to replace cement in the same amount, and basalt fiber and polypropylene fiber are added in a certain amount to make hybrid fiber fly ash concrete. Through rapid carbonation test, the influence of carbonation time and fly ash content on carbonation performance of hybrid fiber fly ash concrete is studied. The curve is fitted according to a single factor carbonation model with fly ash content as the main parameter, and the fitting curve and prediction formula are obtained. The results show that, in the same carbonization time, compared with the concrete without fly ash, the concrete with fly ash content of 5%, 10%, 20%, and 30% has average carbonization depth promotion rates of 6.4%, 14.9%, 59.8%, and 73.5%. When the fly ash content varies in the range of 10%∼20%, the carbonation resistance of hybrid fiber concrete changes most sensitively. At the same fly ash content, with the increase of carbonization time, the carbonization depth of concrete increases by 41.7%∼62.3%; Through the verification of the fitting curve and fitting formula obtained after fitting, it is concluded that the error of the prediction formula of carbonation depth of hybrid fiber fly ash concrete is within 9.1%, and the error of carbonation depth of 14 d and 28 d is within 4.3%. Replacing cement with fly ash has certain engineering significance and can achieve the purpose of recycling waste materials.
With the development of industry, fly ash has become one of the industrial wastes with large displacement in China. Fly ash is a by-product of combustion, accounting for about 60–88 of the total combustion residue of coal-fired power plants. Worldwide, annual production is estimated at 750 million to 100 million tons [1, 2]. If left untreated, it will not only occupy land resources but also cause harm to living creatures and the environment [3, 4]. However, fly ash can be recycled. At present, it has been applied in building materials [5–12], agriculture [13–16], atmospheric control [17–20], and wastewater treatment [21–25], etc., so there is a large space for its utilization. At the same time, the cement production process will emit a large amount of CO2 into the atmosphere, and the increase of CO2 concentration in the air will intensify the carbonation reaction of concrete to a certain extent, bringing certain losses to the economy. The carbonization process of concrete is essentially a process in which CO2 in the air invasions into concrete and causes a series of chemical reactions of alkaline substances inside concrete to form carbonate and water, reducing the alkalinity of concrete [26, 27]. With the increasingly serious carbonization phenomenon, the durability problem of concrete caused by this gradually deepens and may even lead to the destruction of concrete structure.
At present, scholars have carried out a lot of research studies on the carbonization properties of hybrid fiber fly ash concrete. More and more scholars have improved the carbonation resistance of concrete by adding fibers to the concrete. This is because after the fibers are added into the concrete, due to the connection effect between the fibers, the fibers are connected with each other to form a network, thereby reducing aggregate subsidence in the concrete, hindering segregation of concrete mixture, and reducing bleeding of the concrete, thus reducing pore channels in the concrete. At the same time, a large amount of fibers can block capillaries in mortar, reduce or prevent formation, growth, and expansion of cracks in the concrete, and block the connection of cracks, thereby weakening the diffusion path of CO2, inhibiting diffusion of CO2, and improving the carbonation resistance of the concrete . Cheng  studied that steel fiber, polypropylene fiber, and hybrid fiber have different degrees of improvement in carbonization resistance when the volume mixing rate is 1%∼3%. The order of improvement is hybrid fiber series, polypropylene fiber series, and steel fiber series. According to Zhang et al. , carbonation resistance of concrete increases with the increase of the steel fiber content. Under the condition that the volume content of steel fiber remains unchanged, when the volume content of polypropylene fiber is 0.06%, the improvement effect on the carbonization resistance of concrete is the most obvious. With the increase of the volume content of polypropylene fiber, the improvement effect gradually weakens. Kim et al.  found that, in the high-strength mixture, the carbonization rate of polypropylene fiber was faster, while that of steel fiber was slower. Zhang et al.  found that the fiber content increased from 0% to 2%, and the compressive strength of polypropylene fiber and HPVA fiber reinforced carbon fiber reinforced composite first increased and then decreased, reaching the maximum value when the fiber content was 1%. With the increase of fiber content, flexural strength and impact resistance were significantly improved. ECC materials reinforced with 2% polypropylene fibers show excellent carbonization durability with a maximum carbonization depth of only 0.8 mm. Yuan et al.  obtained from carbonization test of polypropylene fiber concrete after high temperature that polypropylene fiber can effectively improve the carbonation resistance of concrete when the dosage is moderate. Bi and Zhao  studied the influence of hybrid fiber on the carbonation resistance of lightweight aggregate concrete by mixing two fibers in lightweight aggregate concrete. The results show that hybrid fiber can greatly improve the carbonation resistance of concrete under the condition of appropriate dosage. Zhu and Wang  concluded through carbonization test study on fly ash concrete with the content of 0∼60% that the carbonization resistance of concrete would decline with the increase of fly ash content. Qiu and Ye  concluded through early curing time for ordinary concrete carbonation resistance experiments that concrete carbonization is strongly influenced by early standard curing time; the shorter the time, the greater the carbonation depth of concrete, especially when the early age of standard curing time is less than 3 d concrete carbonation depth of soil compared with the standard have 28 d increased by 50%∼100%. Jeon et al.  have concluded that the higher the replacement rate of BFS and fly ash is, the more obvious the carbonization acceleration of ternary mixed concrete is. This trend is due to the fact that, with the consumption of Ca(OH)2, its ability to maintain pH decreases, the amount of calcium decreases, and the replacement rate of BFS and fly ash increases. Kurda et al.  found that, with the increase of fly ash content, the carbonization of concrete increased significantly. After adding 30% and 60% fly ash, the carbonization rate was increased by 3 times and 6 times, respectively. At the same time, scholars have also carried out a lot of research studies on the concrete carbonization model [39–42].
In this paper, fly ash is used to replace cement equally; basalt fiber with volume ratio of 0.1% and polypropylene fiber with volume ratio of 0.2% are added. Through rapid carbonization test, the relationship between curing time, fly ash content, and carbonation performance of hybrid fiber fly ash concrete is obtained. Through curve fitting of the relationship between carbonation depth and time of hybrid fiber fly ash concrete, the fitting curve of fly ash adjustment coefficient and carbonation depth calculation formula are obtained. Through verification of carbonation depth calculation formula, it is proved that carbonation depth calculation formula has certain accuracy and provides certain theoretical data for practical application of engineering.
2. Experimental Section
2.1. Materials and Mix Proportion
The cement is P·O 42.5 ordinary Portland cement produced by Bagongshan cement factory in Huainan city, Anhui province. Fly ash is the second-grade fly ash from Pingwei power plant in Huainan city, Anhui province, composed of SiO2 45.40%, Al2O3 33.51%, Fe2O3 5.28%, TiO 4.72%, CaO 3.15%, MgO 2.82%, and others 5.12%. The length of basalt fiber is 6 mm, the physical and mechanical properties are shown in Table 1, and the appearance characteristics are shown in Figure 1. The length of polypropylene fiber is 12 mm, the physical and mechanical properties are shown in Table 1, and the appearance characteristics are shown in Figure 1. Coarse aggregate is 5∼20 mm gradation gravel, fine aggregate is medium sand from Huaihe River, and water is laboratory tap water. After considering such factors as strength and workability, the final mixing ratio of cement-sand-gravel-water is 446 : 613 : 1091 : 250.
2.2. Test Methods
Firstly, the sundries and uncleaned waste materials inside the concrete mold are cleaned; secondly, engine oil is brushed on the inner wall of the mold for demoulding; and finally, small holes at the bottom of the plastic mold are plugged with small pieces of paper to prevent slurry leakage.
Using a forced mixer for mixing to ensure uniformity, after weighing the hybrid fiber, it should be spread evenly by hand so that the fiber can be more evenly distributed in the concrete. The specific stirring method is shown in Figure 2.
After the mixing is completed, pour the concrete out of the mixing pot for molding, put it on the vibrating table for vibrating after the molding is completed, wipe off bubbles on the concrete surface with a spatula, and stop vibrating when there are no more bubbles on the surface.
Standard curing for 24 hours shall be carried out on the vibrated specimen, and the specimen shall be put into saturated Ca(OH)2 solution with a temperature of (20 ± 2)°C for curing after the specimen number is completed.
2.3. Carbonization Test and Data Processing
Carbonization test was carried out in accordance with the relevant provisions of “standard test method for long-term performance and durability of ordinary concrete (GB/T 50082-2009)” . The size of the test specimen is 100 mm × 100 mm × 400 mm prism test block. The test blocks were divided into five groups, three test blocks for each group. After standard curing for 28 d, they were put into the oven with the temperature set at 60°C for 48 h, and the oven was equipped with 101-3A constant temperature drying oven. After drying, paraffin was used to seal the remaining 5 surfaces except the upper surface with paraffin. As the upper surface of the carbonization surface, a parallel line was drawn every 10 mm along the length direction as the measuring point after the failure, and a vertical line was made every 80 mm as the cutting line. Put the lined test blocks into a carbonized box and keep the distance between test blocks above 50 mm, as shown in Figure 3. After putting the test block into the carbonization box, seal the carbonization box and open the adjustment control panel of the carbonization box to keep the CO2 concentration at (70 ± 5)% and the relative humidity at (20 ± 2)°C. The test block was taken out in 3 d, 7 d, 14 d, and 28 d, and the cutting line was cut according to the vertical line with an interval of 80 mm drawn previously. After each cutting, the cutting surface of the remaining part was sealed with paraffin and carbonized until 28 days, and the final breaking pattern was completed. The cut part was cleaned on the surface, and then 1% phenolphthalein alcohol treatment was applied to the surface. After 30 seconds, the carbonization depth of the measuring point was measured with vernier caliper, accurate to 0.1 mm. If there are gravel particles at the measuring point, the carbonization depth is taken as the average value of adjacent measuring points. After all data measurements are completed, the carbonization depth is calculated according to .where is average carbonization depth, mm; is carbonization depth of measuring point, mm; and n is number of measuring points.

The carbonization depth of each specimen was calculated and recorded in Table 2 according to “Standard test method for long-term performance and durability of ordinary concrete (GB/T 50082-2009).”
3.2. Carbonization Pictures
The carbonation pictures of concrete without fly ash and concrete with 30% replacement rate of fly ash with carbonation time of 3 days, 7 days, 14 days, and 28 days are, respectively, selected for comparative analysis, as shown in Figures 4 and 5.
4. Results Discussions
4.1. Effect of Fly Ash Content on Carbonation Depth of Concrete
In order to analyze the influence of fly ash content on the carbonation depth of concrete, the carbonation depth of hybrid fiber reinforced concrete (HFRC) with fly ash content of 0%, 5%, 10%, 20%, and 30% varies with time, as shown in Figure 6.
Figure 6 is the carbonation depth values of concrete with different fly ash contents at different carbonation times. It can be seen from the figure that at the same carbonation time, with the increase of fly ash contents, the carbonation depth of concrete also increases, and the carbonation increase rate also increases gradually. The specific data are shown in Table 3. This is because fly ash has pozzolanic effect, and the increase of fly ash contents will consume the Ca(OH)2 content stored in concrete; thus, the carbonation resistance of concrete decreases and the carbonation depth increases.
The average increase rate of carbonation depth of concrete with various fly ash contents at 3 d, 7 d, 14 d, and 28 d can be obtained; compared with concrete without fly ash, the average increase rate of carbonation depth of concrete with fly ash contents of 5%, 10%, 20%, and 30% is 6.4%, 14.9%, 59.8%, and 73.5%. When the content of fly ash is increased from 0∼5% and the carbonation depth of concrete is increased by 6.4%, the carbonation depth of concrete is increased by 1.3% when the content of fly ash is less than 5%. When the fly ash content is increased from 5% to 10% and the carbonation depth is increased by 8.5%, the carbonation depth of concrete is increased by 1.7% for every 1% fly ash added. Similarly, when the fly ash content is increased from 10% to 20% and from 20% to 30%, the carbonation depth of concrete is increased by 4.49% and 1.37%, respectively, for every 1% fly ash added. It can be seen that when the fly ash content ranges from 10% to 20%, the carbonization depth improvement rate is the highest for each 1% fly ash content. With the increase of fly ash content, the carbonization depth improvement brought by each 1% fly ash content increases first and then decreases, which indicates that the fastest carbonization depth change is in the range of 10%∼20%.
According to Figure 6, it can also be seen that the carbonation depth change rate is the largest when the fly ash content is 10%∼20%, which means the carbonation resistance change of concrete is the most sensitive when the fly ash content is 10%∼20%. This is because when the content of fly ash is low, the filling effect of CSH gel, the secondary hydration reaction product of fly ash, on capillary pores can improve the consumption of Ca(OH)2 in the process of fly ash hydration, and the carbonization depth slightly increases. When the content of fly ash is high, due to the obvious reduction of cement content, Ca(OH)2 generated by hydration is greatly reduced, further reducing the rate of pozzolanic reaction, the number of CSH gel bodies is reduced, and the effect of accelerating carbonization by the reduction of alkali content greatly exceeds the improvement effect of CSH gel bodies on pore structure, thus leading to a significant reduction in the carbonation resistance of concrete [44, 45]. When the content of fly ash is less than 10%, the carbonation resistance of hybrid fiber concrete can reach the carbonation resistance of reference concrete. When the content of fly ash is more than 20%, the carbonation resistance of hybrid fiber fly ash concrete is much lower than that of reference concrete. With the increase of fly ash content, the carbonation depth of concrete increases continuously, that is, the carbonation depth of concrete is positively correlated with the fly ash content. This shows that fly ash weakens the carbonation resistance of HFRC, and the greater the content, the more obvious the effect.
4.2. Influence of Carbonization Time on Early Carbonization Depth of Hybrid Fiber Concrete
There are many factors that affect the carbonization depth of hybrid fiber fly ash concrete, of which carbonization time is one of the important factors [46, 47]. According to the analysis in Table 2 and Figure 7, with the increase of carbonization time, the carbonization depth increases by 41.7%, 48.5%, and 50.5%, respectively, when the content of fly ash is 0%. When the content of fly ash is 5%, the carbonization depth increases by 46%, 49.3%, and 47.7%, respectively. When the content of fly ash is 10%, the carbonization depth increases by 49.1%, 48.1%, and 52.1%, respectively. When the content of fly ash is 20%, the carbonization depth increased by 59.2%, 55%, and 48.7%, respectively. When the fly ash content was 30%, the carbonization depth increased by 62.3%, 43.2%, and 46.4%, respectively. According to the analysis of the results, the carbonation depth of concrete increases by 41.7%∼62.3% with the increase of carbonation time under the same fly ash content. From this, we can draw a conclusion that, with the increase of carbonization time, the carbonation depth of each group of concrete is getting larger and larger. This is because the pozzolanic reaction of fly ash concrete will be accelerated and carried out more thoroughly with the extension of curing age, and the effects of pore refinement, filling of active substances, and improvement of transition zone structure will be more obvious, thus further improving the compactness of concrete. With the decrease of voids and the improvement of pore structure, the infiltration of CO2 gas becomes more difficult, thus improving the carbonation resistance of concrete. Therefore, with the extension of curing age, the carbonation resistance of concrete with large amount of fly ash is obviously improved [48, 49].
5. Carbonization Model and Prediction of Carbonization Depth
A variety of experimental studies have been carried out on carbonization models at home and abroad, and many carbonization models have also been proposed. Among them, equation (2) is generally accepted:where is carbonization depth (mm); a is carbonization coefficient; and t is carbonization time (d).
The variable of this test is the fly ash content, so it is a single factor carbonization model with the fly ash content as the main parameter, and equation (3) is selected:where is carbonization depth (mm); a is fly ash adjustment coefficient; b is comprehensive adjustment coefficient of other factors; and t is carbonization time (d).
When the content of fly ash is 0, the factor of fly ash has no influence on the carbonization depth, so a = 1, and the carbonization depth is . From Table 4, it can be seen that the carbonization depth fitting function is when the content of fly ash is 0, and b = 2.78. Therefore, the calculation formula of carbonation depth can be expressed as . By comparing with the fitting function in Table 4, the adjustment coefficient of each fly ash content can be obtained, as shown in Table 5.
Fit the adjustment coefficient of fly ash and the relationship between the amount of fly ash, and record the amount of fly ash as P. If the amount of fly ash is 30%, then P = 30, and obtain the functional relationship between the adjustment coefficient and the amount of fly ash, as shown in Figure 9.
It can be seen that the correlation coefficient R2 = 0.998. According to the fitting function, the relationship between fly ash adjustment coefficient and fly ash content can be obtained as follows:where a is fly ash adjustment coefficient and P is fly ash content (%) so that that calculation formula to calculate the carbonization depth can be obtained as follows:
Each parameter in the formula has the same meaning as above.
5.1. Verification of Carbonization Depth Calculation Formula
The accuracy of the carbonation depth calculation formula obtained by the above calculation still needs to be checked. The carbonization time and fly ash content are brought into equation (5) to calculate the carbonization depth, and the carbonization test results and calculation results are subjected to error analysis. The obtained results are shown in Table 6 and Figure 10.
Negative error value indicates that the calculated value is smaller than the test result. As can be seen from Table 6, the maximum error is 9.1%, the minimum error is 0, the error is within 10%, and the error of carbonation depth for 14 d and 28 d is within 5%, so the accuracy of the carbonation depth calculation formula is relatively high.
(1)Fly ash reduces the carbonation resistance of hybrid fiber concrete, and the greater the content, the more obvious the effect.(2)In the same carbonization time, compared with the concrete without fly ash, the concrete with fly ash content of 5%, 10%, 20%, and 30% has average carbonization depth promotion rates of 6.4%, 14.9%, 59.8%, and 73.5%. At the same fly ash content, with the increase of carbonization time, the carbonization depth of concrete increases by 41.7%∼62.3%.(3)When the fly ash content varies in the range of 10%∼20%, the carbonation resistance of hybrid fiber concrete changes most sensitively. When the content of fly ash is less than 10%, the carbonation resistance of hybrid fiber fly ash concrete can be the same as that of reference concrete. When the content of fly ash is more than 20%, the carbonation resistance of hybrid fiber fly ash concrete is much lower than that of reference concrete.(4)Through fitting the experimental data, the fitting curve and calculation formula of carbonation depth are obtained. Through verifying the calculation formula of carbonation depth, it is proved that the carbonation depth and calculation formula have certain accuracy, which can provide certain theoretical basis for practical engineering application.
