Electro-osmosis is an important method to reduce internal humidity of concrete, and humidity is an important factor affecting the electrical parameters of concrete. Under the influence of electro-osmosis electric field, the movement of water molecule changes the distribution of humidity inside the concrete, and has a great influence on the electrical parameters of concrete. In this paper, through the measurement and analysis of electrical parameters of concrete, explores the changes of electrical parameters of concrete with electro-osmosis process, this paper proposes a method for judging concrete humidity, provide a basis for the evaluation of effect of electro osmotic effect of concrete.
