abstract

  • Pervious concrete pavement (PCP) is an appropriate means to meet growing environmental demands. To apply pervious concrete as a pavement, its performance should be studied over its life span. This research aims to develop empirical performance models based on a proposed condition index through incorporation of integrated laboratory and field work. Since no condition index has been developed for PCP to date, first, a condition index is developed. The condition index is proposed as a combination of two indices: a surface distress index and a functional performance index. Two sources of data have been collected to develop performance models including panel rating and field investigations. Performance models are developed in two phases using regression analysis techniques. In phase I, performance models are presented as functions of a surface distress index and a functional performance index, while in phase II, performance models are correlated with pavement age and successfully validated.
