Calculation of temperature in the middle of a slab in order to determine the moisture condition for a slab on ground with floor heating

Peter Roots, Carl-Eric Hagentofts & Peter Roots
In order to design a moisture safe slab on ground, a minimum temperature difference of approximately 3 degrees Celsius between the floor and the soil is often recommended. For a slab on ground with floor heating, the heat loss to the ground is greater than in a regular slab. However, the extra heat loss during the heating season results in a warmer soil. This may lead to an upward directed moisture flow during periods when...
