Roller compacted concrete (RCC) represents a major advance in dam-building technology. The RCC method speeds construction & reduces the costs of building without compromising safety. Conventional concrete and roller compacted concrete are both addressed. Curved gravity dams designed for arch action and other types of concrete gravity dams are not covered in this manual. For structures consisting of a section of concrete gravity dam within an embankment dam, the concrete section will be designed in accordance with this manual. Roller-compacted concrete has the same basic ingredient as conventional concrete: cement, water, and aggregates, such as gravel or crushed stone. But unlike conventional concrete, it's a drier mix—stiff enough to be compacted by vibratory rollers. Typically, RCC is constructed without joints.

While roller-compacted concrete technology could have still been considered a new technology in , it is now true to say that construction by roller-compaction has become the standard approach for large concrete gravity dams. This Bulletin addresses all aspects of the planning, design, construction and performance of RCC in : Paperback. The roller-compacted concrete (RCC) dam is a new concept employing an inherently less expensive (leaner) concrete mix to form the core of the dam and allowing Price Range: $ - $ ROLLER-COMPACTED CONCRETE 1. Purpose. The purpose of this manual is to provide information and guidance on the use of roller-compacted concrete (RCC) in dams and other civil works structures. Elements discussed include investigation and selection of materials, mixture proportioning, material properties, design andFile Size: 1MB.   Roller compacted concrete has been used widely on new dams, but it has other uses. Learn how RCC eliminates the need for formwork or rebar for strength.
