Performance of pervious concrete pavement


Rakesh DR, Dr. Kavitha S, Dr. T Felix kala

Pervious concrete (also called porous concrete, permeable concrete and no fine concrete) is a special type of concrete with a high porosity used for concrete flat work applications that allows water from precipitation and other sources to pass directly through, thereby reducing the runoff from a site and allowing the ground water recharge. Pervious concrete is made using large aggregates with little to no fine aggregates. The concrete paste then coats the aggregates and allows water to pass through the concrete slab, pervious concrete is traditionally used in parking areas, areas with light traffic, residential streets, pedestrian walkways and green houses. It is an important application for sustainable construction and is of many low impact development techniques used by builders to protect the water quality. Pervious concrete has been increasingly used to several sustainability- relative benefits offered by this material. Pervious concrete includes other environmental benefits such as reduced noise generated by tire-pavement interaction, reduced urban heat, minimized road splash, improve skid resistance, recharge of ground water table, reduced storm water runoff, limited pollutant penetration into the ground water and preservation of native eco system. In this paper it is discussed about the properties of pervious concrete like compressive strength, split tensile strength, permeability factor and Comparison between pervious concrete and normal concrete.
