Pervious concrete isoneofthe most effective pavement materialsto addressanumber ofimportant environmental issues, such as recharging groundwater and reducing stormwater runoff. In this paper, the findings of an experimental investigation on properties of pervious concrete are reported and discussed. The amount of general purpose Portland cement has been reduced by introducing fly ash as a cementitious agent in pervious concrete samples. The properties of various pervious concrete samples including density, porosity, compressive strength, water permeability and drying shrinkage have been carefully measured. In addition, the relationships among these properties are explored. According to the results, high porosity samples indicated higher permeability, whereas their compressive strength was reduced. There was no significant difference between properties of pervious concrete samples containing fly ash and those samples comprising only cement as a cementitious agent. Hence, environmentally friendly pervious concrete with fly ash can be produced in lieu of conventional pervious concrete. © 2012 Taylor & Francis.
