Abstract: Pervious concrete is known as No fines, gap graded or porous concrete. This concrete is a mixture of Cement, Corse Aggregate and with or without sand. Pervious concrete has an interconnected pore structure that freely allows the passage of water to flow through. This concrete is being used as paving material to solve or reduce the storm water runoff to the drainage system and minimize water logging problems. This paper covers some of the main properties and major uses of pervious concrete and its ecofriendly benefits. This concrete proves to be very beneficial if it utilize to its full extent in various flat work applications in India.
