EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS OF MEMBRANE WATERPROOFING FOR CONCRETE BRIDGE DECKS

THIS REPORT PRESENTS THE RESULTS OF FIELD RESISTIVITY TESTS ON LIQUID-APPLIED AND SHEET MEMBRANES AND OF LABORATORY RESISTIVITY TESTS ON MEMBRANCES OF THE SAME TYPE. THE FIELD TESTS OF LIQUID-APPLIED MEMBRANES INDICATE THAT ABOUT A THIRD OF ALL SUCH INSTALLATIONS ARE EFFECTIVE, AFTER SIX MONTHS OR MORE OF SERVICE UNDER TRAFFIC. THE FIELD TESTS OF SHEET MEMBRANCES ARE PREPONDERANTLY ON NEW INSTALLATIONS, NOT YET IN USE; THESE INDICATE AN INITIALLY HIGH WATER- PROOFING EFFECTIVENESS. THE LABORATORY TESTS INDICATE THE VALUE OF A COVER OF SAND-ASPHALT IN MAINTAINING MEMBRANE EFFECTIVENESS. /AUTHOR/
