INVESTIGATION INTO THE ORIGIN OF BLISTERING OF WATERPROOFING COURSES ON CONCRETE BRIDGE DECKS

ONDERZOEK NAAR HET ONTSTAAN VAN BLAASVORMING IN WATERDICHTE AFDEKLAGEN OP BETONNEN BRUGDEKKEN

The phenomenon of blistering is described. Two types of blistering may be differentiated: (1) blistering during, and (2) blistering after the construction of the waterproofing course. The theoretical aspects of these two types of blistering are discussed. Laboratory tests of the second type of blistering were carried out: courses of various bituminous mixtures were laid on wet as well as on dry concrete slabs and subjected to heat radiation. It appeared that the presence of moisture or water vapour is not necessary for the development of blisters, whereas imperfect adhesion between the several layers is an important factor.
