Abstract:
Ever since concrete has entered so largely into the field of construction as a substitute for stone masonry there has been more or less discussion as to its permeability and various expendients have been resorted to prevent the seepage of water through the material. This refers more particularly to the large masses of concrete built for engineering structures. I am aware that there has been more or less success in making concrete impervious to the action of water by various means, but do not think that any of them have given such satisfaction as to become generally used.
