Abstract

Roller-compacted concrete (RCC) is a special variety of concrete mix with an optimum moisture content, close to that of the ground. It is laid with a standard asphalt paver and compacted using road rollers. Roller-compacted concrete technology is a good solution for the construction of local roads due to its advantages, such as speed of implementation and low construction costs. RCC is an excellent and modern alternative to other mixes where recycled materials can be successfully used, so it is worth considering its wider use in Poland's road construction.The paper will outline the requirements for the materials used in the production of roller-compacted concrete and the method of execution of RCC pavements. The use of existing pavement for the production of RCC, e.g. concrete rubble obtained from road slabs, Reclaimed Asphalt Pavement (RAP), will also be addressed.
