  • Laboratory analysis of the hydrogeological behaviour of rock loose structures on pervious beds

    Large flow interchanges occur between free surface and subsurface flows of river training structures, such as in rock loose chutes based on pervious beds. The filtering action of the base pervious layer can improve the water quality but, at the mean time, reduce the minimum vital flow discharge. This paper, hence, aims to analyse the flow interchanges between the base material and the surface ...

  • Laboratory analysis of the infiltration capacity of interlocking concrete block pavements in car parks

    Interlocking concrete block pavements (ICBPs) have been widely used in car parks to reduce runoff. Researches have demonstrated that clogging is the most influential factor in the reduction of the infiltration capacity of this type of permeable pavement. Nevertheless, there is no laboratory study of the infiltration performance of ICBPs that combines clogging levels with variables related with ...
