Study on the Coexistence of Porous Ecological Concrete with Plants
The effects of mix proportions on the properties of porous ecological concrete, and its coexistence with plants are discussed in this paper. In conclusion, the strength of porous ecological concrete is governed simultaneously by water cement ratio and cement content. Permeability is increased with any increment in aggregate gradation and any decrease in cement paste content. The thicknesses of concrete blocks and topsoil affect the growth of plants.
