This paper compares the X-ray method, the ruler method and the multi-step method to non-destructively determine the moisture diffusivity of calcium silicate and ceramic brick. Results show that the ruler method and multi-step method produce acceptable diffusivities and λ-profiles compared with the common X-ray method, meaning that both methods can determine moisture diffusivity reliably to some extent without the expensive X-ray setup and complicated data processing.
