Vertical Porosity Distributions in Pervious Concrete Pavement

This paper discusses the porosity, hydrological strength and properties of pervious concrete, an alternative paving material. The material is studied for its potential in solving environmental problems caused by urban runoff occurring in developed areas. Results of the research show significant top to bottom increases in porosity when slabs of approximately 15 cm (six inches) in height are placed with an approximately 10% surface compaction technique. This is modeled in a series of vertical porosity distribution equations that use both the compaction percentage and average cored porosities.
