Roller compacted concrete pavement

Alongside our Civil and Pipeline services, we offer Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC) Pavement.  RCC is a cost-effective, low-maintenance, and durable pavement option.  RCC Pavement offers initial costs similar to asphalt and life cycle cost equal to conventional reinforced concrete.  Resistance to freeze/thaw conditions, speed of construction, and life-term performance make this an appealing option to municipalities, commercial, and industrial projects.

RCC Paving Process

Civil sets the stage

The RCC Division takes over;

Equipment set up

begin the paving process;

RCC Mixing Plant

loaders fill the aggregates into a twin-shaft continuous mixing plant which mixes and distributes into dump trucks;

(4) 20-ton dump trucks

are continuously moving with mixing plant production of up to 400 tph;

RCC Intro to Paver

trucks dump freshly mixed RCC into an ABG Paver;

Paver & Screed

ABG Paver is equipped with a double tamper screed providing up to 99% compaction;

40' Wide Capability

R&T Ellis is capable of up to 40' wide pavement being pulled in a single pass;

RCC is strong enough

RCC, unlike conventional concrete can be walked on immediately after being laid, drive-able within hours, and open to full traffic capacity within 24 hours;

Troweling

fresh pavement is immediately troweled;

Nuclear Density Testing

following troweling a nuclear density test is performed to meet quality assurance and quality control;

More QA/QC

core testing is performed not only immediately on site but @ 7/28 days;

Curing

after successful nuclear density testing, curing is completed before being roller compacted.

Joints and Filling

joints are saw cut, and filled with a DOT approved polymer;

On-grade Pavement

The end result of R&T Ellis' division collaboration is: level, even, on-grade pavement. Contact us for more information.

Testing

PSI testing begins with a hand-held vibratory compactor which performs to achieve site based samples. The testing tubes require 3-4 lifts to achieve this similarity.
