Design and Maintenance of Porous Concrete Pavement
Porous concrete is commonly used by ecologically sound construction companies, since it helps to manage water runoff in sustainable way. Many so-called “green” builders promote the use of porous concrete in their projects . Although porous concrete is a viable material that has the potential to replace the use of traditional concrete pavements in situations where heavy traffic is limited, porous concrete has been predominantly used in non-pavements applications, with only a limited use in pavements applications. This paper provides a clear indication of design and maintenance of porous concrete in pavements applications. Various designs of porous concrete pavement were schematized and explained.
