Project Details

Description

The overall purpose of the project is to investigate how different types of permeable pavements (PV) and the underlying structure can mitigate the urban heat island effect by means of evaporation. The present project will test different PV solutions in terms of their evaporation potential, including which structures of the base layer can provide the best capillary rise, so that water is continuously brought up to the PV, without PV losing its primary purpose (seepage of surface water). The tests are performed as laboratory tests at VIA University College and will be considered as a preliminary project for a final main application, where this is tested on a full scale.

The target group for the project is companies, authorities and private actors who work with climate adaptation. The project itself and its results are unique and to the benefit of many - why it must be assumed that there will be great demand not only in Denmark, but also globally.
