Abstract: Pervious or Porous concrete pavements are an alternative to rigid conventional concrete pavement surfaces. The main purpose of pervious pavements is to reduce the stagnation of rain water on the surface during rainy season by permitting the storm water percolate downwards into the ground. It is obtained by completely or partially eliminating the fine aggregates in the mixture proportions. In this work, effort has been taken to develop pervious concrete mixtures with different void contents and evaluating its mechanical properties at 28 days. From the experimental investigations performed, it was found that mix P1 with 15% void content has attained a maximum strength of 15 MPa. It was also observed from this study that the properties of pervious concrete mainly depend on the void content of the concrete mixtures.
