Roller compacted concrete (RCC) represents a new concept in which concrete of no-slump consistency is transported, placed, and compacted utilizing earth and rock fill construction equipment. Properties of hardened RCC have been found to be the same as conventional concrete of the same water-cement ratio. Mixture proportioning, physical properties, mixing, transporting, placing, consolidating, curing, protection and design and construction of gravity sections with RCC are discussed.
