Abstract: The electrical resistivity measurement is a well known approach to assess various parameter among which moisture on concrete. This paper made a review of the various devices adapted for moisture assessment on concrete. We focus on non destructive approach, and with continuous current techniques. In a first part, we present the theory and devices used in this field. On a second part, we propose various examples for moisture assessment, allowing considering the limits of this techniques. On the last part, we show that the calibration of resistivity law is essential for the quality of a diagnosis.
