This paper focuses on the topic of durability of reinforced concrete structures. The aim of the presented study is to use the photocatalytic activity of titanium dioxide in order to create a photocatalised system which, applied on the external surface of reinforced concrete structures, can constitute a protective barrier. To this purpose suitable experimental tests have been carried out able to verify the efficacy of the photocatalytic activity with respect to the durability of reinforced concrete elements in terms of carbonation of concrete and corrosion of reinforcing steel.

Abstract

This paper focuses on the topic of durability of reinforced concrete structures. The aim of the presented study is to use the photocatalytic activity of titanium dioxide in order to create a photocatalised system which, applied on the external surface of reinforced concrete structures, can constitute a protective barrier. To this purpose suitable experimental tests have been carried out able to verify the efficacy of the photocatalytic activity with respect to the durability of reinforced concrete elements in terms of carbonation of concrete and corrosion of reinforcing steel.
