Introduction:-

Porous Concrete its also known as (Pervious concrete, permeable concrete), this kind of concrete is quite different with other conventional concrete, the composition of this kind of concrete just like the conventional concrete but some times there is no fine used for making this type of concrete, entire volume of concrete occupied by coarse aggregate and cement paste with little or no fine aggregate.

 

by the way no fine is used in mixture of concrete there is a lot of voids that cement paste can not filled completely, so that the porosity in quite increase, porous concrete can allow to pass the water from precipitation or other source, it has a good drainage capability, its help to reduce surface runoff during flooding, and help to recharge ground water.
