Roller Compacted Concrete For Pavements in Military Areas Within the Federal Republic of Germany

Paper by BOURGEOIS HERSEL from ISCR 6th 1990

Roller Compacted Concrete Pavements have been constructed on six US Forces military installations within the Federal Republic of Germany (FRG). These RCC pavements will be used as hardstands supporting either wheeled or tracked vehicles. RCC hardstands within the FRG have saved as much as 22 % of the construction cost compared when to conventional concrete pavements. The only problem encountered is persistent cracking along the longitudinal fresh joint. Routing and sealing these cracks is a minor cost compared to the savings. These RCC pavement have performed well and are proving to be an economic alternative for military hardstands.
