QUANTIFYING THE EFFECTS OF POROUS PAVEMENTS ON URBAN RUNOFF

This article contains the proceedings of the National Symposium on Urban Hydrology, Hydraulics, and Sediment Control, Kentucky Uinversity, Lexington, Jyly 27-29, 1976. 921a5 7801 to the system are direct rainfall and an overland flow hydrograph from contributing impervious areas. Outflows include vertical seepage, horizontal drainage, evaporation, and surface flow in the case of a surcharged porous pavement. Model input requirements include physical dimensions of the porous pavement, rainfall intensities, and impermeabilities of the pavement, subgrade, and natural ground. A depth-storage function for the pavement and subgrade is also necessary. A comprehensive temporal accounting of flow and storage in each element of the system is output from the model.
