Title: State Of The Art Of RCC Pavements In Australia
Appears on pages(s):
Abstract:A simple material like concrete is suitable for large-scale production of concrete pavements in either slipformed and roller compacted construction techniques. While slipformed concrete is the preferred option for road authorities, the high production levels of roller compacted concrete (RCC) makes it a viable alternative for contractors, especially where composite pavement construction exists. Better design techniques over the last few years along with more suitable QA specifications, has minimised construction risks and led to less conservative pavement design. The use of better jointing t echniques has also improved pavement performance.. RCC has applications for base and subbase pavement layers, for concrete inlays and at intersections for composite pavement construction. This paper looks at some current aspects of design methods, specif ications, manufacturing and construction techniques used for RCC pavement layers in Australia.
