AbstractThe interests of the Division of Building Research in rain penetration can be said to date from the day it was established in August, 1947. The incidence of serious difficulties with leakage and deterioration of brick masonry in the city of Halifax had already been established in preliminary studies made as part of the post-war study of housing research needs by the Research and Development Branch of the Department of Reconstruction and Supply. It soon became evident that problems with rain penetration of masonry were not confined to the Atlantic provinces, though they appeared to be most severe there, but were being experienced in central Canada as well.
