Roller-compacted concrete in the spotlight
Concrete Society and Rapid International to host online technical seminar on the benefits of RCC
IN partnership with The Concrete Society, Rapid International Ltd will deliver an online technical seminar on the benefits of roller-compacted concrete (RCC) as a more accessible concrete pavement. The event will take place at 1.00pm on Tuesday 29 June 2021 and is free of charge and open to all.
Already well established in the US and Canada, and growing in popularity across Europe, RCC is a high-strength pavement application offering durability, cost efficiency, fast construction and high load-carrying abilities.
Well suited for use on roads and at ports, airports and industrial facilities, RCC is a zero-slump concrete mix typically placed with an asphalt-type paver, followed by a combination of passes with rollers for compaction.
The technical seminar will be of interest to all those who are involved in the design, specification and construction of concrete, including concrete producers, engineering contractors, consulting engineers, concrete technologists and site supervisory personnel.
The event will define RCC and its typical uses, as well as its market growth opportunities and its advantages over traditional blacktop/vibrated-concrete pavements. Advice on mix designs and suitable machinery will also be discussed.
With more than 50 years of mixing technology expertise, Rapid International manufacture machinery for the concrete, construction and environmental industries. The company’s most well-known product, the Rapidmix 400/600 mobile continuous mixing plant, has been utilized for RCC projects by a range of international contractors on a variety of applications.
A Rapidmix unit is currently being used on the largest RCC paving project in the world, in the US state of Texas.
