A Survey of Waterproofing Membrane Systems for Bridge Decks
Wallace T. McKeel, Jr.
Year: 1972
VTRC No.: 71-R33
Abstract: This survey was concerned with only a few of the many waterproof systems available for sealing concrete bridge decks, and made use of personal contacts with engineers of other highway agencies. The information gathered indicated that there were several systems that warranted testing in Virginia. Evaluations of the effectiveness of the membrane systems in use were recommended.
