DESCRIPTION: We will extend the scope of testing to more laboratory and field testing to include a wide range of mixtures and installations. The goal is to ensure mobility on various classes of pervious concrete pavements all-year round. The scope of work will include in-field and laboratory porosity characterization for various pervious concrete installations. Then, correlating the pores properties to ice formation potential, to predict the level of winter maintenance treatments required.
