I'm dragging this back. Now that it is the cold season I am getting RH tests that seem to be dropping and they seem to be more pronounced in cold buildings.

Are there any graphs showing: Concrete RH% vs Amient Air Temp or RH
Are there any graphs showing: Concrete RH% vs Concrete Temp

I know, I know, ASTM says blah blah blah, but I'm interested in the why. Basicly I am looking for how to say to someone WHY they have to have to be at service temp other than "it is ASTM". I want to be able to say
"well if you test with a colder room you will get a [lower/higher] concrete RH result"
or
"well if you test with a colder slab you will get a [lower/higher] concrete RH result"

Essentially I am worried that RH test results perhaps can be skewed just like CaCl by environmental factors but just in a different way.
