Leaky masonry walls persist today as one of the most perplexing problems in the construction of masonry structures. The research described herein on rain resistance of masonry wails has been broadly planned with regard to types of materials and construction. That part completed to date and which is briefly reported in this paper deals entirely with unpainted and painted walls of concrete masonry and has involved 45 different test specimens and a total of 91 tests. Recommendations are given for constructing leakproof wal Is.
