Investigation of Physical and Dynamic Properties of High Porous Concrete

Highly porous concrete is a new promising technology, which can be applied to avoid flooding on pavements, parking lots, and highways. The concrete mixture design allows this material to be highly porous (up to 30% in air voids) and permeable that allows water penetrate through the pavement during heavy rain periods. This would help to increase safety and reduce the number of accidents during harsh weather conditions. Hence, this study will investigate and design samples with different grain sizes and chemical composition to optimize the mechanical, physical, and dynamic properties of the material to use in Louisiana's climate conditions. In addition, this research study is designed to engage Baton Rouge Community College students to develop research skills and use basic engineering principles to solve real-world problems associated with improving the durability and safety of local transportation infrastructure.
