Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC)

Roller-compacted concrete (RCC) is named after the method of construction. RCC is typically placed by dumping zero slump concrete in front of a specially modified asphalt spreader or bulldozer. The RCC is then compacted by vibratory rollers.

While RCC basically consists of the same ingredients as conventional concrete (cement, flyash, fine and coarse aggregates, and water), its’ main difference is that it is a much drier mix. Typically, when using RCC, there are no joints, dowels, or steel reinforcing in the finished product. RCC is often specified for any type of industrial or heavy-duty pavement.

It is also used for dam construction. High rates of production and fast placement make RCC an economical but high-valued pavement.
