Abstract: Pervious concrete is an environmental friendly composite material which consists of cement, coarse aggregate and water. In pervious concrete, voids ratio is more compare to the conventional concrete which will helps to percolates the water through pores present in it. It is otherwise called as no fine open evaluated solid which energies ground water and further more diminish the surface water spillover. In this paper experimental investigation carried out to find out the ultimate load carrying capacity, deflection and stiffness of pervious concrete slabs. The coefficient of permeability was determined by utilizing the falling head strategy. The pervious blend is comprised of coarse aggregate size 20 mm. The axial test on slab 590 X 590 X 150 mm is used to find the load carrying capacity of slab, deflection and stiffness. The results indicate that the ultimate load carrying capacity of conventional concrete is 112 kN and the pervious concrete with 5% of M-Sand is 84 kN, where as the ultimate load carrying capacity of pervious concrete is 5% of river sand is 72kN only. This indicates that the strength of pervious concrete slab with 5% M-Sand is more with compared to River sand.
