Portland cement is considered as one of the environmentally unfriendly materials due to its contribution to the increased liberation of carbon dioxide to the environment during production. In addition to its impervious nature, when it is used for pavement application, it contributes to increased stormwater runoff to drainage systems, over-burdening the infrastructure and causing excessive flooding in built-up areas. This paper presents the results of an experimental investigation associated with quantifying the properties of pervious concrete containing fly ash, up to 50% as partial replacement for cement. The main goal of this research is to promote the utilisation of fly ash for developing durable and sustainable pervious concrete, which creates less negative environmental impacts. © 2009 Taylor & Francis Group, London.
