Pervious Concrete Cylinder Competition Objectives

Teams are challenged to apply sustainability concepts & to use their knowledge of concrete mixture design by producing pervious concrete which balances permeability & splitting tensile strength. Teams are additionally challenged to develop a mixture design which develops the highest load-to-cost ratio. A report that documents the team’s cylinder production process & preliminary results is also scored. In order to qualify for cost analysis, a team’s specimens must meet a minimum threshold permeability, as is true with placements in the construction industry.
