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
