Validation of the PFC Underdrain to Remove Standing Water on Pavement Surface

The overarching objective of Research Project 0-6843 was to evaluate the effectiveness of incorporated subgrade drain (usually called “underdrain”) in the permeable friction course (PFC) pavement to facilitate drainage of stormwater within and on the pavement. It was found out that in general the underdrain could effectively remove standing (ponding) water on the pavement surface under moderate to heavy rainfall conditions. Based on the influence range of underdrain, researchers proposed spacing for underdrain under various pavement slope and rainfall intensity. This project implements the results of that study.
