Abstract

In order to reduce stormwater runoff, permeable brick was prepared by compounding with fly ash and steel slag as the main substrate. The study found that the amount of steel slag has a significant influence on the compressive strength of permeable brick. When the proportion of steel slag is 6.5%, the compressive strength of permeable brick after 28 days curing can reach 26.32 MPa. The strength of permeable brick decreases with the increase of fly ash content, but the permeability coefficient increases significantly. The results show that the compressive strength and permeability coefficient of permeable bricks can reach a good level when the composite ratio of steel slag is 6%, fly ash is 30%, and the design target of porosity is 20%.
