Part of: Roller Compacted Concrete II:

Abstract: This paper reviews some of the differences between roller compacted concrete and conventionally constructed concrete pavements. These differences require additional consideration during design, and the paper presents a comparative design of a conventional and a roller compacted concrete pavement illustrating these considerations. The specific factors and their effects on design that are reviewed in this paper include material properties, compaction, durability under freezing and thawing, joint construction and load transfer, strength variability, fatigue properties, and multiple lift construction.
