ESR10. Resilient and sustainable Permeable Pavements For urban Flood Mitigation (RePP4FM)

Objectives:

To design flood resilient Permeable Pavements Systems (PPS) made with novel materials with high void ratios and mechanical properties for moderate/heavy traffic. To simulate different rainfalls to assess potential impacts of Climate Change and urbanization on urban pavements and society. To map and prioritize urban areas according to their vulnerability.

  • Task 10.1: testing novel raw materials (HV bitumen, super-plasts, polymers) to develop high-performance permeable layers.
  • Task 10.2: lab testing paving materials in mechanical and hydrological terms according to future traffic & climate prognoses.
  • Task 10.3: assessment of potential risks set by Climate Change and urbanization using GIS to map and prioritize urban areas.
  • Task 10.4: development of a multi-criteria decision support tool integrating functional, economic, environmental and social criteria into a sustainability index for the selection of the PPS design that best fits the vulnerable areas.


Expected Results:

  • Characterization of novel flood resilient PPS made with novel raw materials.
  • Review of the risks associated with resilient urban PPS in flood prone areas.
  • Development of a decision GIS-based support tool to facilitate the location and selection of sustainable PPS in cities.
