Permeable pavements are made of porous material that collects rainwater and prevents urban flooding. And... not surprisingly, Speed School and the City of Louisville are leading the way.
Sustainable urban planning is urgent, putting engineers at the forefront of smart transportation, energy efficiency, waste management, climate change, and resource management. Louisville, like many American cities, was built to be state-of-the-art.. in the 18th century. But, thanks to Speed School, the city is also a vanguard of the 21st century and beyond. From autonomous vehicles, to green waterways, to 3D-printed building materials, we’re already creating a model for the cities of the future.
Acres of green sewershed have been installed in central Louisville
Never in my life had I had so many obstacles and learning curves that at the time seemed impossible to overcome. However, I kept working hard and was able to get results and achieve my goal.Gabby Ogle
Two permeable pavement strips were studied to quantify their water quality performance. The quality monitoring was coupled with comprehensive rainfall analysis to investigate the effects of common rainfall characteristics on the quality performance of the systems.
This study investigated the durability of RAC under coupling repetitive loading and freeze-thaw cycles in salt-solution.
