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.
Upon completion of the course, participants will be able to:
- Define RCC key elements and common uses
- Define RCC properties and materials
- Describe RCC mix proportioning
- Describe structural design of RCC pavement
- Identify RCC production
- Identify RCC pavement construction
This training provides agencies, contractors, materials suppliers, and others with a thorough introduction to and updated review of RCC and its many paving applications. This training is recommended for the Transportation Curriculum Coordination Council
levels II through IV.
