Abstract:
This paper does not deal with all the prominent phases of the general problem of waterproofing concrete. Attention is given instead to some of the tests made in the laboratory of which the writer has charge, that of the Board of Water Supply of the City of New York. The data here given should be considered as but the beginning instead of the final results of a series of investigations. In consideration of the short time during which our tests have been under way, the best that can be done is to point out certain possible tendencies in different classes of materials and methods. The major part of our investigations to the present time have been aimed toward securing impermeability of mass.
