What is Roller Compacted Concrete? Roller Compacted Concrete, or RCC, takes its name from the construction method used to build it.
We place roller compacted concrete with high-density specialized paving equipment, then compact it with rollers. RCC has the same basic ingredients as conventional concrete: cement, water, and aggregates. But unlike conventional concrete, RCC is a drier mix—stiff enough to be compacted by vibratory rollers. Based on the client’s needs, RCC paving may be constructed with or without joints. RCC needs neither forms nor finishing, nor does it contain dowels or steel reinforcing. These characteristics make RCC paving simple, fast, and economical. – More about RCC here.
The ownership and core personnel of A.G. Peltz Group have over 50 years of combined experience in the placement of RCC pavements. We have been instrumental in writing and updating the Portland Cement Association (PCA) RCC Pavement Specifications and have been asked to sit on various national committees including ACI 327 Roller Compacted Concrete Pavements and the National Concrete Pavement Technology Center.
Andrew Johnson, PhD, PE, Pavement Design | Engineer, Portland Cement Association – Southeast Region With tight budgets and fluctuating commodity prices, state and local highway agencies are turning more and more to Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) pavement as a paving alternative. RCC is ideal for situations where high strength, rapid construction, and long-lasting durability are desired at […]
