Optimum mix design of enhanced permeable concrete: an experimental investigation

Lian, C. and Zhuge, Y. (2010) Optimum mix design of enhanced permeable concrete: an experimental investigation. Construction and Building Materials, 24 (12). pp. 2664-2671. ISSN 0950-0618

Abstract

Permeable pavement, due to its high porosity and permeability, is considered as an alternative to traditional impervious hard pavements for controlling stormwater in an economical and friendly environmental way. Permeable concrete normally made of single-sized aggregate bound together by Portland cement, using restrictedly as a pavement material, because of its insufficient structural strength. Aimed at developing a new type of permeable concrete with enhanced structural strength, various mix designs were attempted and their effects on the compressive strength and permeability of permeable concrete were investigated in this research. The optimum aggregate and mix components design were consequently recommended for enhanced permeable concrete.
