Abstract (Summary)

Sustainability and cost-effectiveness in infrastructure development has recently undergone rapid growth. Fully permeable pavement is one such concept that is sustainable and being experimented with within the field of transportation. Fully permeable pavement is a contemporary design approach in which each layer is permeable and stores water, avoiding the adverse effects of stormwater on the pavement. In studies, an innovative design methodology was incorporated which was a result of mechanistic-empirical design approach given by University of California Pavement Research Center (UCPRC). Test sections of porous asphalt and pervious concrete pavement were constructed at California State University, Long Beach (CSULB). These pavements provide sustainable way of stormwater infiltration and recharging the groundwater and as a best management practice. Test sections showed reliable performance in terms of pavement distresses after fourteen months of traffic and performed well in infiltrating the stormwater. The collected data from the strain gages and pressure cells reveal that the asphalt section has experienced more stress and strain with a comparison to the concrete section. The collected data will be used to analyze performance and calibrate the structural design procedure of the pavement.
