Concrete Industry Provides Input for Civil Engineering Manual

Print Print this Article | Send to Colleague

The American Society of Civil Engineers (ASCE) is writing a manual of Recommended Design Guidelines for Permeable Pavements and NRMCA has provided commentary on behalf of the concrete industry. Senior National Resource Directors Doug O’Neill and Phil Kresge were invited to review a draft of the manual’s chapter on pervious concrete, as well as corresponding appendices, to verify technical accuracy. Kresge reached out to several of the industry’s leading pervious concrete experts, including members of the NRMCA Pervious Concrete Promotion Subcommittee, for assistance. The input they provided regarding void content, infiltration rates and other pervious concrete properties will be incorporated into the manual.

"This is a huge effort," says Bethany Eisenberg, director of stormwater services for Vanasse, Hangen and Brustlin, Inc. and ASCE committee spokesperson. "With the assistance from dedicated people from within the industry and our team, collaboratively, we are hopeful this comes out as a valuable product."
