Calculation of CO2 uptake in concrete

Calculations of CO2 uptake in concrete are complex and include both chemical and physical processes. CO2 in the air meets a porous concrete surface that absorbs CO2 through capillaries. Through chemical reactions, CO2 then forms carbonates with substances in the concrete. Carbonation is affected by many factors such as concrete composition, porosity and moisture.
