Fick's 2nd law - Complete solutions for chloride ingress into concrete – with focus on time dependent diffusivity and boundary condition

Frederiksen, Jens M. ; Mejlbro, Leif and Nilsson, Lars-Olof LU (2009) In Report TVBM 3146.
Abstract
This report focuses on models of chloride ingress into concrete that are based on mathematical solutions of Fick's second law. In recent years a lot of confusion has been identified concerning these models. In some cases time-dependencies of diffusivity have been used in a mathematically incorrect way. In other cases field and laboratory data from one way of describing the time-dependency of these diffusivities has been used in models that are based on another model. This is now clarified in this report. Some of the clarifications are completely new, concerning the relationship between the age exponents in the time-dependency of the "instantaneous" and the "achieved" diffusivity.
