Strength Development and Water Permeability of Engineered Biomass Aggregate Pervious Concrete

Pervious concrete has a high rate of permeability, low strength and high porosity. It is commonly used in the area of storm water management. However, its use has been limited to pavements with low volume traffic. Pervious concrete is different from normal concrete as the mixture contains no fine aggregates. The aggregate is usually of a single size bonded by a cement paste. This study focuses mainly on the effect of Engineered Biomass Aggregate (EBA) on the compressive strength and permeability of pervious concrete. Three types of mixtures with 0% natural aggregate (NA), 5% BA and 5% of EBA have been studied in this research. A total of 27 150 mm cubes were casted in the laboratory for compressive strength and permeability test. This research aims to enhance the understanding of engineered biomass aggregate pervious concrete as well as the use of pervious concrete for sustainable construction activities due to the environmental benefits it offers.
