AbstractThis report examines the application of a gamma- spectroscopic method to determine moisture distribution in porous materials. A single radioactive source can be used to determine the moisture distribution on porous bodies with rigid solid structure. An experimental method has been developed for this purpose and measurements on four different specimens of glass fibre thermal insulation are reported. The experimental method can give reliable data on moisture distribution on these porous bodies, as a function of position and time.
