Moisture transport under a temperature gradient – some old and new studies

Nilsson, Lars-Olof LU (2013) Understanding the Fundamental Properties of Concrete. Celebrating Professor Erik J. Sellevold on his 75th birthday In Understanding the Fundamental Properties of Concrete - Celebrating Professor Erik J. Sellevold on his 75th birthday (Workshop Proceedings) p.47-60
Abstract
Moisture transport in concrete under a temperature gradient is a topic that has challenged researchers for at least some 60 years. No conclusions are still drawn on how to describe it theoretically and how to quantify it experimentally. In this paper some of the theoretical and experimental work done is summarized. A description of the flux of moisture by the relative humidity and the water vapour content as the two transport potentials is proposed. A comparison with laboratory and field data is given and the consequences in some applications are discussed.
