Pervious Concrete Driveway vs. Traditional Concrete

What is Pervious Concrete? The strength, durability, and longevity offered by concrete makes it a very essential component in the construction of driveways. Concrete driveways are driveways whose pavements are sealed using concretes. It is a likable material for driveways because it is long lasting and requires little maintenance. In the treatment of your driveway []

Concrete - Wikipedia

Concrete is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens (cures) over time. In the past, lime based cement binders, such as lime putty, were often used but sometimes with other hydraulic cements, such as a calcium aluminate cement or with Portland cement to form Portland cement concrete (named for its visual

Predicting Multiple Properties of Pervious Concrete

Abstract. Pervious concrete creates a very porous medium that allows water to penetrate the pavement to underlying soils. It is a promising candidate in permeable pavement systems in urban areas, which could be an efficient solution to sustainable drainage systems. Concrete mixture design usually requires labor-intensive and time-consuming work

Effect of Aggregate-Cement Ratio on Engineering Properties

Unlike conventional concrete which contains only 3-5% voids, pervious concrete contains around 15-35% of voids, which allows water to percolate through it much rapidly. Pervious concrete has a relatively lower compressive strength, higher permeability, and a lower unit weight, approximately 70% of conventional concrete.

Use of carbonation curing to improve mechanical strength

Carbonation curing is a promising method for CO2 sequestration and strength improvement of cement-based materials. For normal cement concretes, the carbonation dominantly occurs in the outer layer zone of specimen and the overall strength improvement for a real structure is limited. Due to the high interconnected void content, pervious concrete is regarded as a better recipient for CO2 curing.
