Louisiana Department of Transportation

Rollcon donated a test section of RCC roadway to the Louisiana Department of Transportation’s research center so the agency could study the structural performance and load-carrying capacity of RCC-surfaced pavements under accelerated pavement testing (APT). Various in-situ pavement testing and instrumentation were employed to monitor load-induced pavement responses and pavement surface cracking under the ATLaS loading. The study concluded with a recommendation that the state’s Pavement Design Section implement thin RCC-surfaced pavement structure for DOTD’s low-volume roadways where heavy (and overloaded) trucks are often encountered.
