Pervious concrete is a type of concrete with high porosity. It is used for concrete flatworks application that allow the water to pass through it, thereby reducing the runoff from a site and allowing ground water recharge. The high porosity is attained by a highly interconnected voids content. Pervious concrete has water to cementicious material ratio of 0.34. The mixture is composed of cementicious materials, coarse aggregates and water with no fine aggregates. In this paper works pervious concrete with f ly ash as a blended material is tested for strength and permeability for assessing the adaptability of fly ash as a substitute material to cement. The percentage of fly ash is varied from 10% and 20%. Various tests like compressive strength, tensile streng th and water permeability are done on the specimens and results are discussed.
