Thinking Outside the Box with Roller Compacted Concrete Pavement

Paper by KILLINGSWORTH from ISCR 12th 2014 Prague Czech Republic

Roller compacted concrete (RCC) pavement has been used for decades in situations where repetitive heavy loads are applied and for large paved areas. These applications have included logging yards, ports, automobile manufacturing plants, and warehouse districts among other places. While these are appropriate applications for RCC pavement, there are many other uses for this versatile paving material. Alternative applications for RCC pavement include light industry, municipal airports, local streets, low volume roadways, highway shoulders, middle turn lanes, lane widening, alleys, and may also be used as a rigid base for portland cement concrete or asphaltic concrete surface courses. When utilizing RCC pavement in these alternative settings, it is important to design the RCC mixture and place the pavement using methods that are applicable to these areas. Additionally, production of RCC mixtures utilizing ready mix operations may also be considered as a more economical alternative when paving RCC for low volume roadway applications like residential streets and other urban applications.
