Study on the Surface Infiltration Rate of Permeable Pavements

  title={Study on the Surface Infiltration Rate of Permeable Pavements},
  author={Eban Z. Bean and William F. Hunt and David Alan Bidelspach},
Asphalt surfaces have greatly increased the amount of pollutant-carrying runoff entering surface waters. To counteract this, permeable pavement can be installed to allow water to infiltrate, thus reducing runoff and acting as a filter. This study tested the surface infiltration rate of 27 permeable pavement sites in North Carolina, Maryland and Delaware. One of these sites in North Carolina was monitored to compare pollutant loads of asphalt runoff to those in infiltrate. Concrete grid pavers… 

Evaluating the Infiltration Performance of Eight Dutch Permeable Pavements Using a New Full-Scale Infiltration Testing Method

Permeable pavements are a type of sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS) technique that are used around the world to infiltrate and treat urban stormwater runoff and to minimize runoff volumes.

Pervious pavements - installation, operations and strength part 2 : porous asphalt systems.

Pervious pavement systems are now being recognized as a best management practice by the Environmental Protection Agency and the state of Florida. The pervious pavement systems are designed to have

Investigation of Sediment Retention within the Permeable Pavement Substructure

Permeable pavements are one proven solution for improving stormwater runoff quantity and quality. They are load bearing and can be designed for local roads as a substitute for impervious bitumen road

Measurement of Permeability and Comparison of Pavements

Permeable pavements have the ability to reduce surface runoff by allowing water to infiltrate into the underlying soil. The potential of permeable pavements to assist in managing stormwater and

Comparing Two Methods of Determining Infiltration Rates of Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavers

Adequate infiltration through Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavements (PICPs) is critical to their hydraulic performance. Detected by monitoring infiltration performance, reduced infiltration rates

Mathematical modeling of the infiltration in a permeable pavement on the field scale

Permeable pavement (PP) is an alternative for the management of urban rainwater that allows the reduction of effective precipitation through the infiltration process. In this study was evaluated the

Long-Term Infiltration Performance Evaluation of Dutch Permeable Pavements Using the Full-Scale Infiltration Method

This research used a newly developed, full-scale infiltration testing (FSIT) procedure to determine the saturated surface infiltration rate of 16 existing permeable pavement installations in the

Effect of age of permeable pavements on their infiltration function

This study describes field investigations designed to compare the infiltration capacities of 55 permeable pavement systems installed in the Netherlands and in Australia. The ages of the pavements

Three Types of Permeable Pavements in Cold Climates: Hydraulic and Environmental Performance

AbstractThis paper examined and compared the hydraulic and environmental performance of permeable interlocking pavers (PICPs), porous asphalt (PA), and porous concrete (PC) under cold climate

Hydraulic Characterization and Design of Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavement

The environmental benefits of permeable pavements are vast and include stormwater quality reduction, stormwater quality improvement, urban heat island mitigation, and groundwater recharge, among



Permeable Interlocking Concrete Pavements - Selection, Design, Construction and Maintenance

Urbanization brings an increasing concentration of pavements, buildings, and other impervious surfaces. They generate additional runoff and pollutants during rainstorms, causing stream-bank erosion

Permeable pavements: Pollution management tools

The University of Washington Permeable Pavement Demonstration Project -- Background and First-Year Field Results

Wherever grasslands and forest are replaced by rooftops and roads, the movement of water across the landscape is radically altered. Some of these changes are intentional, and they render the land
