Paper Title:
Distribution and Shape of the Pores in Water Permeable Concrete
  Abstract

Porous concretes with continuous voids have been gaining more interest as an ecological material because of their useful functions such as water permeability and adsorption ability. So pore size distribution and the shape of especially open pores are the key point to permeability. In this study, the size and shape of pores of water permeable concrete were primary controlled by the size and shape of aggregates and secondly by the expanding agents to the cement pastes. 2 types of raw coase aggregate, type I and type C which mean fabricated by impact crusher and concrusher, were taken into uses and 3 sizes of aggregate were used, namely 3 to 5mm, 5 to 13 mm, and 13 to 20 mm. The compressive strength was found to be higher when using impact crushed aggregate. And the smaller size of aggregate was used, the higher compressive strength was achieved.
