Resistance test measurements of moisture content of concrete are described, methods and resultsnoted. Calibration chart shows relation between moisture loss in concrete and the ratio of the percent of conductance of field concrete to that of control concrete. Tests of slabs in the ColoradoRiver Desert, Morris Dam mass concrete, and tunnel lining of Mecca Pass Tunnel of the Colorado River Aqueduct are recorded, indicating moisture content variation of structures in the field.
