measurement in a cold slab

#3
Welcome Noweare!

Your question is a very good one, and a problem I have been working on but haven't finalized.

You probably know that warm air can hold more moisture than cool air. The same amount of moisture will have a higher RH in cool air than warm. But for some reason the relationship in a concrete hole is not the same as in the atmosphere. This may be due to the particles that make up concrete itself, absorbing and holding water or releasing water depending on the temperature.

What I can tell you is that as the concrete warms the RH will tend to drop, but not by as much as one would think.
