Synthesis of Information Related to Highway Problems. Topic 42-07. Waterproofing Membranes for Concrete Bridge Decks

Bridge deck deterioration is one of the most extensive problems for bridge maintenance. Using waterproofing membrane might be a good way to mitigate this problem. A recent International Scan,"Assuring Bridge Safety and Serviceability," in Europe found agencies consistently reported success with the incorporation of waterproofing membranes for new concrete bridge deck construction as a means of both extending service life and circumventing the need to rehabilitate or replace bridge decks. In contrast, their usage in the United States remains, to a large extent, limited. This study will update to NCHRP Synthesis 220 Waterproofing Membranes for Concrete Bridge Decks (1995). It will assemble, organize, evaluate and document information related to advances in materials, design, construction and performance of waterproofing membranes for existing and new bridge decks. In particular, the identification of domestic materials, processes and installation practices which have been successful, as well as why domestic systems have failed, is needed.
