Using sufficient paste to coat and bind the aggregate particles together creates a system of highly permeable, interconnected voids that drains quickly.
The in-situ strengths of both types of civil engineering concrete, SCC and traditional vibrated concrete were closer to standard cube strengths than those of the housing mixes again; this is typical of higher strength concrete.
In vertical element, in-situ strengths of both SCC and traditional vibrated concrete are higher at the bottom than at the top, vibration of in-situ strengths, for both types of concrete is much lower in horizontal elements, in this case the beams.
This pavement technology creates more efficient land use by eliminating the need for retention ponds, swales, and other stormwater management devices.
In doing so, pervious concrete has the ability to lower overall project costs on a first-cost basis.
Self-Consolidating Concrete (SCC) has been widely used in both practical and laboratory applications.
