Laboratory Testing and Modeling for Structural Performance of Fully Permeable Pavements

This report presents a summary of the results of laboratory testing, computer performance modeling, and life-cycle cost analysis of fully permeable pavements. This report provides a preliminary design procedure and an example set of catalogue-type design tables that can be used to design a fully permeable pavement pilot and experimental test sections in California. Results indicate that fully permeable pavements could be a cost-effective stormwater best management practice (BMP) alternative as a shoulder retrofit on highways, and for maintenance yards, parking lots, and other areas with slow moving truck traffic. Recommendations for implementation as a BMP will require full-scale field experiments and pilot studies.
