Data-driven machine learning approach for predicting volumetric moisture content of concrete using resistance sensor measurements

Abstract

In sewerage industry, hydrogen sulphide induced corrosion of reinforced concretes is a global problem. To achieve a comprehensive knowledge of the propagation of concrete corrosion, it is vital to monitor the critical factors such as moisture. In this context, this paper investigates the use of resistance measuring and processing for estimating the concrete moisture content. The behavior of concrete moisture with resistance and surface temperature are studied and the effects of pH concentration on concrete are analyzed. Gaussian Process regression modeling is carried out to predict volumetric moisture content of concrete, where the results from experimental data are used to train the prediction model.
