RCC Pavements in Tasmania, Australia
Over 60,000 m**2 of high strength Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) pavement has been completed in Tasmania, Australia, since December 1986. Projects have ranged from footpaths and small...

Proportioning RCC Pavement Mixtures
The U. S. Army Corps of Engineers has begun using roller compacted concrete for construction of heavy-duty pavements and low volume streets and roads which are exposed to low-speed tracked...

RCC Storage Pads at Tooele Army Depot, Utah
Two 30. 5 m (100 foot) by 91. 4 m (300 foot) ammunition storage pads, each 381 mm (15 inches) thick, were constructed by the Sacramento District of the U. S. Army Corps of Engineers in...

Rennick Yard RCC Pavement Design and Construction
Rennick Yard roller compacted concrete paving project consisting of 136,000 multiplied by (times) yd**2 (113,710 m**2) was completed in June 1986. The design load for this project was...

Corps of Engineers Experience with RCC Pavements
Roller compacted concrete pavements were first developed in the U. S. by the Corps of Engineers in 1975. Since that time, RCC pavements have been constructed throughout much of the U....

RCC Pavement Construction and Quality Control
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...

Design of Roller Compacted Concrete Pavements
This paper reviews some of the differences between roller compacted concrete and conventionally constructed concrete pavements. These differences require additional consideration during...

Expert System for Management of Low Volume Flexible Pavements

Guidelines for Design and Construction of Pozzolanic Stabilized Base Course Mixtures
The American Coal Ash Association (ACAA) has developed a manual of recommended practice which contains guidelines for the design and construction of pozzolanic stabilized base course mixtures...

Mining Subsidence Effects on Transportation Facilities
This paper presents case history information about mining subsidence effects on transportation facilities, including bridges, pavements, and culverts. Most of the field observations pertain...

Rapid-Setting PCC Pavement Patching Materials

Probabilistic Design of Flexible Pavements
Numerous random phenomena enter into the process of deterioration of pavements under the effect of traffic. It is felt that improvement in current design methods could be obtained by adopting...

Virginia Case Studies of Risk Based Drainage Design
The goal of this paper is to apply a practical engineering risk-based method of design of pavement and surface drainage systems to three Virginia case studies. The target systems include...

New Pavement Materials
New materials and construction techniques are constantly being evaluated to extend pavement life and to improve overall performance of highway and airfield pavements. To be beneficial,...

Modelling the Effects of Wind on Pavement Runoff
Phase I of this study, the primary focus of this paper, consists of the development of a mathematical model to predict runoff depths from a pavement under uniform wind conditions. The...

Comparing Benefits of Safety and Non-Safety Programs
The objective of this presentation is to compare benefit-cost ratios for major highway construction projects to those for highway safety projects, such as: (1) new highways, (2) major...

A Case for Science-Based Road Safety Design and Management
What civil engineers do has a major effect on road safety. However, contrary to appearances, the level of safety built into roads is largely unpremeditated. Standards and practices have...
