What is meant by Capillary water in buildings? Construction materials, like concrete, aggregates and sand, are porous and allows water molecules to rise due to capillary action. This creates a ring of dampness in base of buildings or structure including lateral walls due to accumulation of capillary water. The principle behind the capillary rise is … Read more Effects of Capillary Water on Structures and Foundation | Preventing damage

Permafrost in Construction Permafrost is the soil or rock with or without water that continuously remains at a state of 00 C (320F) or below for two years or more. It is mostly found in subzero Polar Regions and high-altitude mountain ranges. Building construction on permafrost is quite different from normal construction methods that we … Read more Construction on Permafrost | Design Considerations & Maintenance
