Roller Compacted Concrete Pavements in the Basque Country

Paper by JOFRE ZABALA from ISCR 8th 1998 Lisbon Portugal

This paper presents the main features of roller compacted concrete (RCC) pavements for low-volume roads constructed in the Spanish Basque Country since 1992. RCC is produced in ready-mixed concrete plants and placed by local asphalt contractors. Due to the small thicknesses (15-18 cm) of these works, RCC layers can be easily compacted, this resulting in remarkable splitting strengths (average value on cores: 4.4 MPa) and a very satisfactory performance.
