No-Fine concrete pavements are use mostly in rural area. This concept of pervious concrete is relatively new for rural road pavement. Pervious concrete has ability to flow water through it and this property help to recharge the ground water. Pervious concrete pavement is unique and effective technique to meet the future demand. Strength of the pervious concrete is low as compared to conventional concrete it is all due to high porosity. No-fines concrete is mostly used in non-pavements applications, limited use in pavements applications. This assignment purpose is to assess the suitability for no-fines concrete to be used for the construction of road pavement
