Pervious Concrete Performance Webinar

This webinar summarizes activities related to the performance of pervious concrete in Eastern Washington and in Southern Brazil. The foci in Eastern Washington are on longer-term infiltration capabilities and surface evaluations, including over winter conditions and as related to the areas of associated run-on, most based on several field applications. The focus in Southern Brazil is with respect to soil clogging based on laboratory analyses on small slabs and cylinders. All the studies were then compiled to effect a non-destructive method to estimate slab porosity from initial surface infiltration rates.
CESTiCC Associate Director at WSU, Liv Haselbach, Ph.D., P.E., is an associate professor in the Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the WSU. She is the author of the McGraw-Hill GreenSource book, The Engineering Guide to LEED-New Construction, Sustainable Construction for Engineers. She has authored numerous papers on sustainability related to developmental issues, carbon sequestration and low impact development. Her recent research includes water quantity and quality benefits of permeable pavements, titanium dioxide as an air pollutant treatment for pavements and life cycle assessment (particularly use phase) projects on carbon and energy related to transportation. Dr. Haselbach is very active in the sustainability education arena and has developed courses on sustainability and the LEED rating system at WSU and the University of South Carolina. She is a LEED AP (BD+C). Prior to her academic career she founded an engineering consulting company in the New York – Connecticut area, which specialized in permitting, construction and site development for major US companies, particularly in the retail petroleum industry. Her degrees include a BS in Civil and Environmental Engineering from Cornell, an MS in Chemical Engineering from UC Berkeley, and a PhD in Environmental Engineering from the University of Connecticut.
