Roller Compacted Concrete - Background to the

2021-6-7  RCC derives its name from the construction method; it is laid with a paver and compacted by rollers. It is only a concrete in the sense that its main constituents are aggregate, water and cement. It does not behave in the same way as conventional concrete in terms of construction or performance. It does not require reinforcing, dowel bars or formwork for construction. RCC is constructed in a similar fashion to paved Cement Bound Granular Mixtures (CBGM), while having an in-service performance similar to a rigid concrete
