Abstract :

The groundwater reserves have been depleting day by day since the late 20th century due to increase in pumping of water from the ground, at a faster rate than replanting construction of asphalt and cement concrete road due to which percolation of water is preventing to this problem pervious concrete presents a promising solution. Pervious concrete when used in places where there is light moving loads or dead load like footpath, sidewalk, 2 wheeler parking lots etc. can facilitate in replenishing the ground water and reducing storm water runoff. Pervious concrete in its original from has higher voids contents and porosity due to which infiltration rate of water through the concrete increases, but this consequently decreases the strength of the concrete. In this project an attempt was made to increase the strength of pervious concrete by maintaining all the useful properties, by the addition of polypropylene fibers to the pervious concrete. A mix design was prepared for both pervious concrete with fiber and without fiber by using ACI 522R. Pervious concrete trial mixes were prepared and tested for compressive strength & workability and comparison between both the samples was made. The pervious concrete mix was checked for void content, porosity and infiltration rate was also tested. Keywords: Pervious concrete, compressive strength, workability, infiltration rate.
