An Introduction to Roller-Compacted Concrete Pavements
This online engineering PDH course provides an introduction to the materials, methods, delivery and placement of roller-compacted portland cement concrete pavements. It describes procedures and criteria that are applicable to the design and construction of roller-compacted concrete pavements.
Roller-compacted concrete pavement (RCCP) employs a concrete paving technology that involves laydown and compaction of a zero-slump concrete mixture using equipment similar to that used in placement and compaction of asphaltic concrete pavement. By using these construction techniques, the potential exists to save one-third or more of the cost of conventional concrete pavement. Although the concept and technology behind RCCP is relatively new, RCCP has already proven itself cost-effective in projects including log-sorting yards, port facilities, heavy equipment parking areas, tank trails, and haul roads.
This 3 PDH online course is intended for civil and highway engineers and other design and construction professionals seeking an introduction to the technologies, equipment and construction practices for roller-compacted portland cement concrete pavements.
