Paper Title:
Evaluation of Permeability of Porous Concrete
  Abstract

One of the most important characteristics of porous concrete is the ability to capture and transport water. The permeability of porous concrete is therefore needs to be evaluated. This paper will investigate various methods for testing the permeability of porous concrete and compares the different results from falling head and constant head tests. The hydraulic theories were then applied into the analysis to determine the permeability of the porous concrete samples.
