John Kevern’s Pervious Concrete Research Impacts Many Areas

John Kevern, assistant professor of civil engineering, is conducting several nationally-funded pervious concrete related research projects which are providing SCE civil engineering students with research opportunities.   Pervious concrete is a specialty concrete with properties that reduces storm water run-off due to its ability to absorb rain water, the urban heat island effect and ice-related falls.
