Moisture Correction in Concrete Mix ... - Rogue Valley Precast

One final important note about moisture correction in concrete: Precast concrete producers must make these adjustments in batch water for aggregate moisture content. Dry aggregates require extra batch water. Wet aggregates require less batch water. The proper adjustment depends on multiple variables, including how porous the aggregates are.

Precast concrete panels, for example, which have a facing material of a composition different from the backing, may be subject to such warping. A differential moisture content through the thickness of a homogeneous material will also have a warping effect, since the side of higher moisture content will expand more than that of the lower.
