A 180-degree departure from conventional design, new pervious concrete systems—which operate according to a principle known as Large Area Thin Infiltration Systems (LATIS)—are considerably more effective (and versatile) than other stormwater management BMPs if properly designed. However, most designs today cost more than they should and perform well below their potential. The development of LATIS requires a major re-think in pervious concrete system design.
Join David Liguori for the first session of our two-part Pervious Concrete 2.0 Master Class Series introducing new pervious concrete design based on LATIS as well as its hydrological performance, specification and maintenance BMPs, and the wide variety of finish options available. By walking through the building of a pervious concrete system model, we’ll discuss the basics on how to maximize the performance and minimize the costs of pervious concrete systems.
Specifically, this online training webinar will explore how conventional design elements, which serve well in conventional systems, were never intended for pavement-based stormwater management systems, and using them actually does more harm than good. The latest innovations in mix design, finish options, installation techniques, and Dynamic System Modeling have—in just the last few years—revolutionized what is considered best practices for pervious concrete system design, leading to new levels of quality and performance. In fact, in cases where native soils may infiltrate slowly or quickly saturate, creating runoff, properly designed pervious concrete systems based on LATIS can outperform other stormwater management BMPs (and even natural, undeveloped surfaces) in terms of infiltration and treatment, thus providing increased hydrological benefits.
Attendees can expect the discussion and education of the following learning objectives.
- Learn how Large Area Thin Infiltration Systems compensate for soils with low infiltration capacity.
- Understand how Dynamic System Modeling affects pervious concrete design and performance.
- Determine specification and maintenance practices to avoid underperforming and costly pervious concrete.
- Explore new decorative finish options for your pervious concrete system.
