Abstract

The purpose of this review is to give an up to date overview of the existing literature in fluid transport processes within Permeable Pavement Systems with the main focus on evaporation. The paper summarises the internal and external factors influencing evaporation rates in Permeable Pavement Systems, such as characteristics of pavement surface and sub-surface layers, presence of water barrier/treatment systems, the water availability near the surface and ambient conditions. Experimental methodologies and designs used to investigate evaporation in laboratory and field settings are discussed, as well as limitations and constraints identifying existing gaps with the potential for further research.
