Concrete Nomograph (Surface Moisture Evaporation Rate ...

02/03/2017  I've got a technical question related to a nomograph that can calculate the evaporation rate of the surface moisture on a concrete slab. I have attached a picture of the nomograph for a better visual understanding (can also be found on Google). Basically,there are three graphs representing air temperature, relative humidity, concrete temperature and wind speed. By providing the results of
