Roller compacted concrete pavements (RCCP) are favourable for port yards. To develop the design, both the bearing capai-ity and the load transfer efficiency at the joints were studied. An experimental pavement with two different RCCP structures was built: namely, one that follows the ordinary design method for port yards consisting of thick concrete slabs rested on the subbase, and one with thinner slabs on a stiffer subbase. As a result, both types can be applied to port yards and the joints without any load transfer devices will be usable if a stiffer subbase is used.
