Pervious concrete is a type of concrete that consists of cement, sand, and water. Since it doesn’t contain fine aggregates, the void content allows the water to pass through the concrete. Due to the various advantages of pervious concrete, its usage is limited even though it has many advantages. However, its low weight and porous composition make it less prone to fracture and rupture. Pervious concrete is commonly used for the construction of light traffic roads. However, it can also be utilized for the improvement of rigid pavement for heavy vehicles. The goal of this investigation is to improve the concrete’s strength characteristics. In order to achieve this, the researchers are trying to improve the concrete’s permeability. Improvement of strength should not alter the properties of the materials. In this work, we have succeeded in achieving good strength and permeability by replacing silica fume with 5% cement.
