  • Porous pavement technology - Case Study

    Porous pavement systems address environmental issues, such as aesthetics and permeability, while providing needed support for a wide variety of loading requirements. From heavy emergency vehicles to pedestrian foot traffic, porous pavement applications range from fire access lanes to utility roads, trails, walkways, and other high use areas. Porous systems are designed to handle the most ...

  • Porous pavement application overview - Case Study

    The permeable Geoweb® Solution As communities grow and experience increases in surface runoff from newly constructed buildings and hard parking surfaces, the capacity of existing stormwater runoff systems are often pushed beyond their limits. This problem has led to environmental regulations that require the use of stormwater retention and porous pavement systems.   ...

  • Water quality and quantity assessment of pervious pavements performance in experimental car park areas

    Pervious pavements have become one of the most used sustainable urban drainage system (SUDS) techniques in car parks. This research paper presents the results of monitoring water quality from several experimental car park areas designed and constructed in Spain with bays made of interlocking concrete block pavement, porous asphalt, polymer-modified porous concrete and reinforced grass with ...

  • Geotex® Geotextiles: A Life Cycle Costing Approach to Roads

    Subgrade contamination is the leading cause of failure in both pavements and unpaved roads. Aggregate layers used to support the traffic or pavement typically rests on a subgrade of sand, silt or clay. Without permanent separation, two factors will undoubtedly lead to the contamination of the aggregate layers—fine-grained soils will enter into the voids of the aggregate, preventing it from ...

  • Case study - Airport platform

    Mexico City's international airport was built over a lake; the soil is expansive clay with water content approaching 200%. Settlement is a severe problem and several airport runways necessitated a 4m asphalt layer thickness. A recently constructed airport platform using a conventional pavement was expected to settle 3 cm at the 3 vertical loading points of the airplane over two years. In fact it ...
