MOISTURE MEASUREMENT OF POROUS MATERIALS

A METHOD FOR THE IN SITU DETERMINATIONS OF MOISTURE CONTENT BASED ON THE RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN THE RELATIVE HUMIDITY AND THE MOISTURE CONTENT OF POROUS MATERIALS IS REPORTED. A VIBRATING WIRE TELEHIGROMETER WAS STUDIED BASED ON THE LENGTH VARIATIONS OF CERTAIN HYGROSCOPIC MATERIALS ON ABSORBING OR LOSING MOISTURE AND THE MEASUREMENT OF THESE STRAINS BY MEANS OF A VIBRATING WIRE. THIS METHOD HAS THE DISADVANTAGE OF REQUIRING AN INDIVIDUAL CALIBRATION FOR EACH INSTRUMENT AND OF PRESENTING A CERTAIN HYSTERESIS AND SLOW RESPONSE.
