Paper Title:
Effect of Ceramsite Type on the Internal Relative Humidity of Ceramsite Concrete
  Abstract

The internal relative humidities of concrete using different types of ceramsites with different prewetting degrees were monitored by humidity sensors. The study reveals that the internal relative humidity of concrete using low water absorption rate ceramsites declines more slowly than that of concrete using high water absorption rate ceramsites when not prewetting; the internal relative humidity of concrete using high water absorption rate ceramsites is higher than that of concrete using low water absorption rate ceramsites when their prewetting degrees (1h or 24h) are the same; the internal relative humidity of concrete using ceramsites is higher than that of ordinary concrete, whether the ceramsites are prewetted or not.
