Abstract: Concrete permeable pavements are more and more used in stormwater management. As there is neither French guidance nor standards about these products, nor European common specifications, the CERIB, Study and Research Centre for the French Concrete Industry, has established some tools for stakeholders in stormwater management. The first one defines technical requirements which could be applicable in France, mainly in terms of permeability and mechanical resistance, to ensure a relevant performance level. The second one is the development of a new functionality of the free “ODUC+” software, which permits the determination of the required performance of the pavement, and, if relevant, the required characteristics of the storage structure, depending on the project specific parameters.

Key words: precast concrete, road storage structure, design, infiltration, modular pavements
