Water penetration into concrete mainly depends on the force of capillary absorption and hydrostatic pressure, whereas the water-saturated state is difficult to reach except for the concrete exposed to the condition of high hydrostatic pressure, such as the deep sea environment; consequently, almost all of the water penetration into concrete is mainly by the force of capillary absorption, and the test of capillary water absorption is developed to evaluate the permeability of concrete [13, 14].
