The Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) Pavements course provides detailed overviews of RCC properties and materials, mixture proportioning, structural design issues, and production and construction considerations, plus troubleshooting guidelines and an extensive reference list for more comprehensive information.
This course contains six modules. Module 1 is an introduction in RCC covering the characteristics, benefits, limitations, selection considerations, and typical uses. Module 2 discusses the property differences between RCC and conventional mixes, material requirements and testing. Module 3 covers mix proportioning of RCC, while Module 4 gets into structural design of RCC pavements. Module 5 acquaints the student with production and the proper handling and storage of materials, mixing and batching, and production planning. Module 6 covers the actual construction of a RCC pavement. All of the modules for this training were developed from the August 2010 “Guide for Roller-Compacted Concrete Pavements” which is available from the Portland Cement Association website www.cement.org/pavements.
