Pervious Concrete Testing Methods

Pervious concrete is a unique construction material that serves simultaneously as a structural surface and a stormwater best management practice. Due to its void structure that allows for water and air to flow through the pavement, there are many existing concrete testing methods that may not be readily adapted to account for these differences, and simultaneously there are many procedures for porous material testing that may not be easily adapted to its solid structure. Testing methods for this novel material are needed for many reasons, from research consistency to material acceptance during placement and for determining long-term maintenance needs. This paper will review some of the testing methods currently under development for pervious concrete and summarize research methodologies which are being explored.
