The corrosion reactions in concrete materials subjected to external environment attack can lead to the deterioration of concrete. However, the effects of internal fluctuations on the corrosion reaction process have not been reported in current studies on damage of concrete materials. To comprehensively describe the effects of internal fluctuations, the stochastic dynamic model of corrosion reactions in concrete materials subjected to sulfate attack is established based on the law of mass conservation and random process theory, in which internal fluctuations and the parameters of the chemical system are, respectively, regarded as colored Gaussian noises and a series of random variables. An experiment of sulfate corrosion reactions in concrete material is carried out to verify the effectiveness of the proposed method. Furthermore, the effects of variations of the initial reactant concentrations on the concentration evolution processes of the corrosion products are investigated. Results show that the stochastic dynamical responses of the corrosion reactions in concrete can be comprehensively investigated by the proposed stochastic mathematical model; the probabilistic information of the corrosion products can also be obtained conveniently. The concentration evolution process of sulfate corrosion products is a random process. The experimental data are only some samples of the random process. Concentrations of the corrosion products in concrete materials significantly fluctuate with the variations of the initial reactant concentrations.
