For periodic monthly testing, six randomly-selected locations were tested on each of the four permeable pavement sections from December to MaySeptember to Mayand August Jump to main content. Field investigation of clogging in a permeable pavement system building research and information. Click here to c1071 up.

An additional single parking row at the northern end of the lot was surfaced with wstm concrete PC-N. The modeling clay molds quickly and creates a seal between the ring and pavers. Log In Sign Up. Even when one test measured that the surface was clogged near the upgradient edge, the effect was generally diluted by averaging with the larger infiltration rates from unaffected locations.

Standard Test Method for Infiltration Rate of In Place Pervious Concrete

The field measurements were performed using six experimental section designs with different permeable pavement surface types including pervious concrete, porous asphalt and permeable interlocking concrete pavers. Permeable Pavements in Cold Climates: Erdem Coleri 6 Estimated H-index: A comparison of thermal performance of different pavement materials. In addition, changes to C are proposed to include PICP, concrete grid pavements, and porous asphalt for comparative purposes.

Understanding from a Laboratory Investigation. Astrid Volder 17 Estimated H-index: Data and experience from Bean, Lia, and Drake confirm that C is suitable for testing the surface infiltration of PICP and Bean extends its use to successfully testing concrete grid pavements.

As the use of these pavements increases, a definitive test method is needed to measure hydraulic performance and to evaluate clogging, both for performance studies and for assessment of permeability for construction quality assurance and maintenance needs assessment.


Visual inspection of concrete cores is the best approach for determining sealing of voids near the bottom of the pervious concrete slab. It is recommended that future surface infiltration testing should strategically select fixed testing locations based on expected clogging patterns.

The ASTM method is written specifically for pervious concrete, so additional research is needed to determine the applicability of this method to other permeable pavement types.

The longevity was attributed to the clogging mechanism. Borst reports using a modified version of C to test PICP, pervious concrete, and porous asphalt as part of a nationally visible evaluation of these pavements. There was no difference between maintained and unmaintained area surface infiltration rates, likely due to the newness of the surfaces.

Maupin 1 Estimated H-index: This framed area should represent the percentage of open area in the overall surface to best characterize surface infiltration.


A bucket or other suitable container s with graduations related to the mass of water could obviate a scale on the site while still providing the mass of water dispensed during the test. Enter the email address you signed up with and we’ll email you a reset link.

Infiltration rates were significantly different across each pavement type. Booth University of Washington. These notes shall not be considered as requirements of the standard. Environmental Protection Agency constructed a 0.

Show Additional Record Data. Permeability predictions for sand-clogged Portland cement pervious concrete pavement systems.

Experimental infiltration tests on existing permeable pavement surfaces. As a sister sustainable pavement to pervious concrete, permeable interlocking concrete pavement PICP has seen increased use for stormwater management and low impact development LID.

ASTM C/CM – 17a – Standard Test Method for Infiltration Rate of In Place Pervious Concrete

She is also investigating water volume and pollutant removal from these pavements. Water quality and restoration in a coastal subdivision stormwater pond. Clogging evaluation of open graded friction course pavements d1701 under rainfall and heavy vehicle simulators. Conclusions The most common permeable pavement surfaces are pervious concrete, PICP and porous asphalt. This is likely due to the speed and economy of conducting tests in this manner. US EPA research objectives and parameters measured at the Edison, New Jersey, permeable pavements research facility Monitoring Objective Parameters Measured Hydrologic performance Volume, exfiltration rate Water quality Soils, indicator organisms, metals, nutrients, organic performance compounds Urban asrm island effects Net radiation, infrared radiation, temperature Maintenance effects Surface infiltration rate, visual assessment Use Car counter, visual assessment Infiltrating water Water depth, redox, pH, conductivity, chloride parameters Remember me on this computer.


In ascending cost order they include 1 visual inspection during or immediately after a rainstorm for ponding; 2 measuring surface infiltration on sampled small areas; 3 generating synthetic rainfall and runoff for a distinct rain event which often involves a rain simulator; and 4 continuous monitoring of rainfall and surface runoff usually over a period years.

Jun Chen 5 Estimated H-index: He moved to a single ring infiltrometer due to high surface infiltration rates of the permeable pavements tested and the volume of water required for maintaining hydraulic heads within the rings.

The solids concentrate and collect at this location as the runoff infiltrates through the surface. The values stated in each system may not be exact equivalents; therefore, each system shall be used independently of the other. Understanding from a Laboratory Investigation journal of materials in civil engineering.

Brattebo University of WashingtonDerek B. Runoff transports solids to the upgradient edge of the permeable c171 surface. Along these lines, proposed changes to C include the following: Surface infiltration is a key performance indicator of both pavement types.
