Numerical solutions of the Boussinesq equation were used to examine the hydrologic behavior of porous pavement systems incorporating subdrains in open graded base courses placed on impermeable membranes. A series of numerical experiments showed that substantial control of the runoff hydrograph from parking lots could be obtained through the use of porous pavements. The numerical experiments conducted with synthetic design storms were used to develop equations and graphs for use by engineers designing porous pavement systems for runoff control. /Author/
