Structure Analysis of Roller Compacted Concrete Pavement

Paper by INOUE SAWA from ISCR 6th 1990

Roller Compacted Concrete Pavement in Japan has progressed rapidly today because of its simplified paving method and early opening to traffic. Structural properties of RCCP are required to be investigated to establish design method of this pavement. Load response after paving and strain due to base course friction were measured. These test results show that elastic layered theory can be applicable to estimate working stress due to traffic load, and crack propagation mechanism is explained by a amount of shrinkage constraint strain and furthermore effective efficiency of load transfer across the joints and cracks has been considered as a critical point as well as fatigue damage. This paper also states the current activities to get its potential properties more successfully.
