Course Description: AEC Daily: Effective Waterproofing
Critical to concrete waterproofing are the products used in combination to create a system that ensures complete control of moisture migration. Presented here are effective concrete waterproofing technologies and how they improve the durability and lifespan of structures. Discussions include water penetration, system selection, membrane protection, and cementitious waterproofing.
Describe the mechanics by which liquid water and water vapor are transported through concrete structures and the effect this can have on structural integrity.
Discuss the importance of resistance to hydrostatic pressure, capillary action, and vapor pressure when selecting a waterproofing system and specify the appropriate system based on the project requirements.
List the types of materials used for membrane protection and describe how they contribute to the overall durability of a waterproofing system.
Compare crystalline waterproofing systems to flexible cementitious waterproofing systems in terms of their applications, limitations, and uses, and how they affect long-term durability and performance in design and construction.
