This study was conducted to assess the effect of CO2 curing on the compressive strength of high strength pervious concrete. The factors studied to evaluate compressive strength of concrete on CO2 curing pressure, curing time, and age of specimen at testing. Three Aggregate sizes, three CO2 curing pressures, three CO2 curing time, and three testing ages were used in this investigation. The research tried to produce a high strength pervious concrete and use carbon dioxide for curing to find out whether it could enhance the compressive strength. The results show that the compressive strength of the control group increases rapidly and its 90-day compressive strength closed to 60 MPa. The 1-day compressive strength has a major impact after CO2 curing and their strength decreased by about 0% to 50% as compared to the control group. However, it is observed that there is only slight difference in relationship between modulus of elasticity and compressive strength obtained from 100 by 200mm cylinders with CO2 curing.
