RedVector is proud to release a new course called Designing and Specifying Pervious Concrete. This 2-hour course is mobile-ready and provides an overview on implementing pervious concrete pavements as a solution to reducing stormwater runoff from building sites and other paved areas.
Participants will learn about pervious concrete pavement systems, engineering properties and construction techniques. The first hour discusses hydrologic and structural design of pervious concrete pavements. The second hour addresses the specifics that every specifier should consider when drafting pervious concrete specifications, with a focus on American Concrete Institute (ACI) Committee 522 Guide to Specification for Pervious Concrete. This webcast will help civil engineers, architects, landscape architects and public works officials understand the principles behind pervious concrete design. Contractors, product suppliers and land developers will also benefit from this webcast,
By the end of this course, you will be able to identify the fundamental characteristics of pervious concrete; describe how to design pervious concrete mixtures in the laboratory for sufficient porosity for stormwater infiltration; compare and contrast the hydrologic and structural design requirements to reduce the environmental impact often associated with development; communicate the important aspects of constructing a pervious concrete pavement to reduce stormwater runoff volume, rate, and pollutants; and describe how to maintain pervious concrete pavement so as not to weaken the concrete and endanger the public.
This RedVector course was authored by Brian Killingsworth. Mr. Killingsworth is the Vice President of Pavement Structures for the National Ready Mix Concrete Association.
