Moving particle simulation for a simplified permeability model of pervious concrete
Zilola Kamalova and Shigemitsu Hatanaka

    This study aimed to investigate the permeable nature of pervious concretes (PC) through the moving particle simulation (MPS) method. In the simulation, the complex structure of a pervious concrete was virtually demonstrated as a lattice model (LM) of spherical beads, where the test of permeability was conducted. Results of the simulation were compared with the experimental ones for validation. As a result, MPS results showed the permeability index of the LM as almost twice as big as the actual PCs. A proposed virtual model was created to prevent the stuck of water flow in the MPS simulation of PC or LM. Successful simulation results were demonstrated with the model.
