WATERPROOFING OF CONCRETE BRIDGE DECKS

THE REPORT DISCUSSES THE REQUIREMENTS FOR AN EFFECTIVE PAVEMENT WATERPROOFING LAYER, DESCRIBES THE SYSTEMS AVAILABLE (BITUMINOUS MATERIALS, PREFABRICATED SHEETING AND THIN ADHESIVE MEMBRANCES), REVIEWS THEIR USE IN VARIOUS COUNTRIES, AND EVALUATES CONCRETE SURFACINGS WITHOUT SPECIAL WATERPROOFING. IT PRESENTS A CRITICAL APPRAISAL OF THESE SYSTEMS TOGETHER WITH CONCLUSIONS AND RECOMMENDATIONS FOR FURTHER RESEARCH. THE APPENDICES CONTAIN DETAILS OF TESTS AND SPECIFICATIONS FOR WATERPROOFING MATERIALS. /TRRL/
