Roller-compacted concrete is a durable paving material that is capable of withstanding heavy loads. It is a fast, economical construction method for dams, off-highway pavement projects, heavy-duty parking and storage areas, and as a base for conventional pavement. It uses a stiff, no-slump concrete mixture with the consistency of damp gravel comprised of local aggregates or crushed recycled concrete, Portland cement, and water.
The mixture is placed and roller compacted with the same commonly available equipment used for asphalt pavement construction. The process requires no forms, finishing, surface texturing, or joint sawing and sealing.
Concrete's ability to provide passive cooling is widely applied in both new and refurbished buildings; this guide explains thermal mass and its advantages.
