Optimal Design for Porous Concrete Pavement - Phase II

The second phase of this three phase project will be dedicated to determine the optimal strategy for the design of parking lots (and related facilities) using porous concrete. The first phase focused on developing a mathematical model of the behavior of water in a porous concrete pavement and creation of a computer program that solves the equations inherent in the model. This phase will focus on the behavior of water once it has entered and moved through the porous concrete. Although this work is separate and distinct from that of my colleague Professor Dewoolkar who is determining the physical characteristics of the porous concrete, his results will continue to be used in this analysis.
