Remote monitoring and logging of relative humidity in concrete

Åhs, Magnus LU (2005) 7th Symposium on Building Physics in the Nordic Countries, 2005 In Proceedings of the 7th symposium on building physics in the Nordic countries p.181-187
Abstract
It is important to measure the relative humidity, RH, level in a concrete slab before applying semi permeable flooring to the surface. If the moisture level in the concrete is too high when the flooring is applied the high alkali level in combination with the moisture will degrade the adhesive.

This paper describes a new system used to continuously measure and monitor RH in situ during the construction stage. The paper includes descriptions of the method, an authentic measurement, and also how to evaluate results given by the measuring equipment. The presented results are taken from measurements performed on a construction site where the RH has been monitored, via the mobile phone network.
