This course is designed to familiarize Designers with pervious concrete (PC) as a stormwater best management practice through infiltration. Discussion will include PC mix design, design issues affecting PC pavement, including soils and stormwater infiltration, site hydrology, pavement sizing, siting & layout, site preparation, PC placement and post placement landscaping, monitoring, and long term care and maintenance. In particular Piedmont soil types and infiltration rates are discussed. ASTM standard test for measuring infiltration rates through porous pavements is demonstrated. The historical evolution of pervious concrete paving and its many benefits are also covered. Some attention is given to good and bad installation practices. Intended audience: This course will be of direct interest to those in the Civil Engineering, Landscape Architecture, and Urban Planning fields, including county engineers, city engineers, public works officials, transportation engineers, DOT personnel, consultants, and all those with responsibilities for stormwater design and control.
