Abstract: Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) pavement is an outgrowth of the traditional cement-treated aggregate base (soil-cement) method of street and highway construction. The major use in British Columbia has been in heavily loaded industrial pavements, primarily log storage areas. Wear resistance is excellent, although experience in a severe winter climate is limited thusfar. Thickness selection is based on experience and comparison with regular concrete design parameters.
