WATERPROOFING OF CONCRETE STRUCTURES

IMPERMEABILIZACION DE OBRAS DE HORMIGON

THE EFFECTS OF CONCRETE ADDITIVES ARE STUDIED FROM THE POINT OF VIEW OF IMPROVEMENT IN WATERPROOFING CONDITIONS. IN ADDITION TO THE MATERIALS COMMONLY USED, THE AUTHORS REPORT ON THE USE OF SUPER PLASTICIZERS AND THEIR INFLUENCE ON WORKABILITY, WATER CONTENT, IMPERMEABILITY AND COMPACTION. IN CONTRAST TO OTHER WATERPROOFING AGENTS, WHICH GIVE RISE TO A REDUCTION IN STRENGTH, SUPER PLASTICIZERS DO NOT ONLY MAINTAIN THESE CHARACTERISTICS BUT IMPROVE THEM. TYPES OF PLASTICIZERS ARE LISTED AS WELL AS THEIR PROPORTIONING.
