The intent of waterproofing is to prevent leakage from structures that hold liquids, such as water tanks and to prevent moisture from entering a living place, such as basements. This course is intended to help identify different options available to waterproof concrete, differentiate between the materials available for integral waterproofing of concrete, and understand the tests used to qualify waterproofing admixtures.
