Water Intrusion Mitigation Methods for Reinforced Concrete Foundations

Brent Anderson | Moisture Control Engineering Team Leader, Structural Technologies

Solving Water Problems on Basement & Underground Structures

In basements and underground structures, water and moisture intrusion is a common problem. In areas with saline groundwater, like the Middle East, the ingress of moisture causes extensive deterioration, including the corrosion of the reinforcing steel in concrete. Problem solving with underground structures can be complex. This presentation will highlight the main causes of water and moisture intrusion, proper investigation and analysis techniques to determine the root cause of issues, and how to develop and implement the best repair solutions that will extend the service-life and prevent future problems.
