ACI confirms winners of Pervious Concrete Cylinder Student Competition

The American Concrete Institute (ACI) has announced the winners of its 2018 Pervious Concrete Cylinder Student Competition which took place at the Concrete Convention and Exposition in Las Vegas. The first place in the cylinder performance and cementitious efficiency category received a cash award of $750 followed by second place ($500) and third place ($250).  

The teams applied sustainability concepts and used their knowledge of concrete mixture design by producing pervious concrete which balanced permeability and splitting tensile strength. They also developed a mixture design that demonstrated cementitious efficiency which maintains the overall performance of the mixture with the lowest amount of cementitious material.
