Winners revealed of ACI Pervious Concrete Student Competition

The American Concrete Institute announces the winners of its 2015 ACI Pervious Concrete Student Competition. 

The competition took place at The Concrete Convention and Exposition in Denver, CO, USA.

The first, second, and third place in the Cylinder Performance, and Cementitious Efficiency categories each receive cash awards of $750, $500, and $250, respectively.
 
Teams were challenged to apply sustainability concepts and to use their knowledge of concrete mixture design by producing pervious concrete that balanced permeability and splitting tensile strength. Teams were additionally challenged to develop a mixture design that demonstrated cementitious efficiency; that is, maintaining the overall performance of the mixture with the lowest amount of cementitious material.
