Document Type: Proceeding Paper

Part of: Roller Compacted Concrete II


In October 1986 a 16,500 sq yd (14,300 sq m) roller-compacted concrete (RCC) pavement tank hardstand, the first of its kind in Europe, was built for the U. S. Army at Harvey Barracks in Kitzingen, West Germany. This paper briefly discusses the design and construction of the hardstand, reviews the intensive quality control procedures used during the construction, and presents results of density, smoothness, and strength tests.
