It presents an overview of typical permeable pavement systems and reviews the design considerations. Detailed design, construction, use, and performance information is provided for porous asphalt, pervious concrete, permeable interlocking concrete pavement, and grid pavements.   The book addresses the typical concerns that agencies, developers, and contractors have with using porous pavement on a project: costs too much, too difficult to maintain, "fails", etc. There are detailed specifications and recommendations for design, and plenty of examples of constructed porous pavements/5(4). Porous paving (also known as pervious paving or permeable pavement), is a term used to describe paving methods for roads, parking lots and walkways. Porous asphalt, concrete, paving stones or bricks allow precipitation to infiltrate through to the soil below.

Our line of quality porous paver systems offer design options for a wide range of permeable vehicular and pedestrian traffic areas—from firelanes. The porous asphalt pavement specified herein is modified after the National Asphalt Pavement Association (NAPA) specification outlined in Design, Construction, and Maintenance Guide for Porous Asphalt Pavements, Information Series () and Design, Construction, and. Porous Pave is a pour-in-place permeable paving material that is highly porous, flexible and resilient. An eco-friendly green building product made in the U.S.A. with recycled rubber, Porous Pave offers superior permeability, exceptional versatility, and demonstrated durability. For more than 10 years, Porous Pave has proven to be an. 2 | Porous Asphalt Pavements with Stone Reservoirs FHWA-HIF Unlike conventional pavements, porous asphalt pavements are typically built over an uncompacted subgrade to maximize infiltration through the soil. Above the uncompacted subgrade is a geotextile fabric, which prevents the migration of fines fromFile Size: KB.

NAPA's Structural Design Guidelines for Porous Asphalt Pavements (IS) provides guidelines for the use of AASTHO 93 Design Guide methodology when determining structural thicknesses for full-depth porous asphalt pavements. Porous asphalt pavements allow for land development plans that are more thoughtful, harmonious with natural processes, and sustainable. They conserve. water, reduce runoff, promote infiltration which cleanses stormwater, replenish aquifers, and protect streams. A typical porous pavement has an open-graded surface over an underlying.
