Introduction Porous (pervious) concrete is a special type of concrete with a high porosity used for concrete flatwork applications that allows water from precipitation and other sources to pass directly through, thereby reducing the runoff from a site and allowing groundwater recharge . The high porosity is attained by a highly interconnected void content.

Contd. It is a mixture of Cement, Corse aggregate and with or without sand (Fine aggregate) and has enough cementitious paste to coat the coarse aggregate while preserving the interconnectivity of the voids. This concrete is being used as paving material to solve or reduce the storm water runoff to the drainage system and minimize water logging problems.

Porous Concrete Porous Concrete: when it rains, it drains.

Mix Proportion Materials Proportion Range Cementitious Material 270 - 415 Kg/m3 Water/cementitious Ratio 0.20 - 0.45 Coarse Aggregate 1190 - 1600 Kg/m3 Void Content 15% - 35 % Note: Retarders are often used to control the normal rapid setting of pervious concrete.

Contd. Pervious concrete mix proportion used in various geographic areas: Materials Florida Massachusett Colorado s Cementitious 355 kg/m3 370 kg/m3 360 kg/m3 Material 75 to 90 105 kg/m3 kg/m3 Water/Cementitious 0.21 - 0.25 0.28 Water 80kg/m3 0.22 Coarse Aggregate 1540 kg/m3 1600 kg/m3 1365 kg/m3 Voids Content 22% to 25% 18% 35%

Properties Density: In place densities on the order of 1600 kg/m³ to 2000 kg/m³. Void: Concrete with a high volume of voids (20% to 35%) Permeability: Typical flow rates for water through pervious concrete are 120 L /m2/min, or 0.2 cm/s to 320 L /m2/min, or 0.54 cm/s. Compressive Strength: 3.5 MPa to 28 Mpa

Contd. Flexural Strength : 1 Mpa to 3.8 Mpa Shrinkage : Drying shrinkage of pervious concrete develops sooner, but is much less than conventional concrete in order of 200 10-6 have been reported. Freeze-Thaw : Entrained air in the paste dramatically improves freeze-thaw protection for pervious concrete.

Relationship Between Age & Modulus of Rupture

Applications Low-volume pavements Residential roads, alleys, and driveways Parking lots Well linings Foundations/floors for greenhouses, fish hatcheries, aquatic amusement centers, and zoos

Pervious PavementIt’s a System.

Conclusion Saving in materials- As no-fines concrete contains no sand and consequently requires considerably less cement per cubic yard of concrete, there is a direct saving in materials. High thermal insulation value-Because of its nature, which allows the formation of large voids, it has better insulating characteristics than conventional concrete. Environmental Benefits: Reduces storm water runoff

Contd. Eliminates need for detention ponds and other costly storm water management practices. Replenishes water tables and aquifers. highways generally are not suitable for pervious concretes. pervious concrete pavements allow snow to melt faster, requiring less plowing.
