Abstract: 
Tests have been carried out on eleven types of concrete ranging from normal strength to high strength concrete, and polymer modified concrete establishing permeability and diffusivity of uncracked and cracked concrete as a function of temperature between 20 and 80°C. The results show a considerable increase of these properties with temperature. Theoretical prediction on the basis of thermodynamics show reasonable to good agree-ment between theory and experiment.
