This book provides both a comprehensive theoretical background and practical experiences on the performance of pervious concrete. It explores the effects of various materials and process parameters on the mechanical, durability, and hydraulic properties of pervious concrete while examining their hydrological design and water quality. The ability to upscale the use of pervious concrete in construction applications is investigated through field evaluation, lifecycle assessment, and performance prediction using artificial intelligence. The volume presents the latest findings in pervious concrete research, filling a gap in previous relevant publications.

The book comprises three parts:
- Materials used in pervious concrete: Various materials are investigated to produce pervious concrete with adequate properties. Such materials include recycled aggregates from construction and demolition waste, geopolymers and alkali-activated materials, glass powder waste, municipal solid waste incineration ash, biochar waste biomass, and waste tire rubber aggregate, among others.
- Hydrologic design and water quality: This part focuses on the main application of pervious concrete in pavements for stormwater control and management. It starts with a framework for the effective investigation of hydrologic and water quality performance of pervious concrete pavements. It also outlines techniques used for allocating pervious concrete pavements in urban planning. Modeling and predicting the hydrological performance of pervious concrete is also addressed.
- Upscaling the use of pervious concrete: This part investigates the ability to predict the performance of pervious concrete using artificial intelligence. It also presents a lifecycle assessment of pervious concrete and evaluation of the field performance of pervious concrete. The clogging and maintenance processes of pervious concrete is also described.
