Analysis of pervious concrete properties

Rama Mahalingam, Shanthi Vaithiyalingam Mahalingam

Abstract

Various properties of pervious concrete, such as the compressive strength, split tensile strength, flexural strength, porosity and permeability, are studied in this paper for two aggregate gradations with different aggregate to cement ratios. Although the higher cement content exhibited better results for strength properties, the porosity and permeability results were lower. This study also aims to evaluate the balance between the porosity, permeability and compressive strength of pervious concrete for different aggregate size and cement content values. The test results show that it is possible to produce a pervious concrete mixture with acceptable permeability and strength values.

Keywords
