CONSTRUCTION TECHNIQUES FOR ROLLER-COMPACTED

Roller-compacted concrete (RCC) is a new material that uses a construction technique that applies the material property theories of both soil mechanics and concrete. The resulting product is a construction material with the strength characteristic of conventional concrete. Because RCC is a new material, the construction process for its placement is in a state of trial and adjustment; however ...

ROLLER-COMPACTED CONCRETE

Roller-compacted concrete, which emerged as a viable means of constructing dams in the 1980s, allows much faster and less expensive construction than traditional methods. Roller-compacted concrete has several advantages and disadvantages when compared to traditional dam construction. However the advantages often outweigh the disadvantages, and RCC dams are quickly gaining world-wide

Roller-compacted concrete

In dam construction, roller-compacted concrete began its initial development with the construction of the Alpe Gera Dam near Sondrio in North Italy between 1961 and 1964. Concrete was laid in a similar form and method but not rolled.[3][4][5] RCC had been touted in engineering journals during the 1970s as a revolutionary material suitable for, among other things, dam construction.[6] Initially ...

15/12/2017  Roller-compacted concrete pavement (RCC) has been used for several decades in specific applications, mostly for heavy-duty industrial pavements. But it has the drawback of a rough surface with little aesthetic appeal, leading some owners to use it as a subbase with an asphalt overlay. A contractor and chemical maker may have resolved these issues. They’ve launched an “advanced”

Construction methods for external paving - Concrete

Traditional construction methods for external paving can lead to slower rates of progress and as a result the construction of the paving may be on the ‘critical path’ of the construction programme. There is thus a need to significantly improve the construction productivity of external concrete paving, by developing simple uncomplicated and ‘buildable’ designs and by carefully ...

Construction of Roller-Compacted Concrete Pavements

Roller-compacted concrete pavement (RCCP) is the product of a new concrete paving technology in which a zero-slump portland cement concrete mixture is spread with a modified asphalt paver and compacted with a vibratory roller. This construction method, which is very similar to asphaltic concrete paving, has the potential for savings of one-third or more of the cost of conventional (slip-form ...
