Determination of moisture permeability in concrete under high moisture conditions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticle

Abstract

With a method relying on measurements of the flow of water vapour from a specimen and measurements of the distribution of the relative humidity in the specimen at steady state conditions, the moisture permeability can be calculated and its dependence on the relative humidity can be determined. The specimens are of dimensions that are used in ordinary buildings.
