Performance of Pervious Concrete Pavement in a Cold Weather Climate

Thursday, October 28, 2010 - 10:15am

About the Event

Over the past five years, there have been many pervious concrete projects in Minnesota. The majority of studies on pervious concrete have concentrated on the analysis of laboratory specimens without significant examination of field performance. Furthermore, most of these studies have not taken the comprehensive approach of evaluating the pervious concrete’s durability from both a hydraulic and structural perspective.

In this seminar, Lev Khazanovich will discuss the study of pervious concrete completed at the University of Minnesota, including its aims to categorize distresses common to pervious concrete in a wet, freeze-thaw environment and analyze pervious concrete as a pavement. As part of the study, researchers analyzed core samples of existing, local, in-service pervious concrete, including samples at the MnROAD facility in Albertville, Minnesota.
