Porous Concrete For Urban Pavements

Paper by ROSEN AGUADO JOSA from ISCR 6th 1990

Over the past few years, interest in the uses and applications of porous cement concrete for pave-ments has been growing. Its position in pavementconstruction has developed to such an extent thatit iscurrently used in places of greater importance(from shoulders to sub-bases, and even surfaces).This paper is part of the experience that the wri-ters have acquired with this material applied to ur-ban pavement surfaces for pedestrian or servicevehicles (light traffic) use.Apart from the theoretical considerations referringto the properties demanded from these pavements,there isalso a presentation of the experiments per-formed for the draining pavements to be used inthe Olympic Village of Barcelona.
