This comprehensive training session is presented by some of the foremost experts in Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) paving. Often referred to as the “third pavement material,” RCC has many features and benefits, but also requires a different approach to design, construction, and repair for low-volume streets, highway shoulders, industrial applications, military facilities, and more.
This training is a must for small and large contractors, including those with and without RCC paving experience. Project and construction managers, estimators, equipment managers and quality managers, as well as civil, geotechnical and pavement engineers will learn about this new pavement type. The training is also well-suited to agencies and owners, architects/designers, building managers, facilities managers, and others interested in knowing more about how RCC pavements can be used.
The 3.5-hour training course will feature three modules, including:
- Introduction to RCC (60 min.) —Attendees will gain a better understanding of the history of RCC, the basic RCC paving process, features/benefits, and the market applications for which it is best suited.
- Quality RCC Construction (90 min.) —Attendees will learn about the basics of design; available construction methods; preparing a mixture design; handling materials; subgrade preparation; equipment selection; placement; jointing and curing. This module will take the RCC process from the cradle to completion.
- Troubleshooting RCC (60 min.) —This module will be an interesting and hard-hitting look at solutions to common problems with RCC pavements from the perspective of experienced contractors; attendees will learn how to recognize defects and deficiencies, and how to prevent and repair problems.
The program also will allow time for questions and answers, as well as discussion of specific RCC project specifics, issues, and other key points.
