Many of the physical properties of concrete are dependent on the quantity of water in the concrete; strength, permeability, durability, and volume changes are some of these properties. Believing that a knowledge of the influence of temperature and relative humidity on the equilibrium water content of hydrated cement pastes would be of assistance in interpreting phenomena associated with varying water content, the authors showing quantity of water remaining present data cement pastes after drying, as influenced the water-cement ratio, the duration of curing, and at which drying occurs.
