Abstract
Roller compacted concrete (RCC) is durable, economic and environment friendly material commonly used for construction of heavy industrial floors and roads (low speed and arterial). The production RCC in a large quantity leads to emission of excessive CO2 and there by damages the environment. Hence, it is essential to identify the eco-friendly binder materials for partially replacing the cement. This paper summarises present trends and past findings of use of various sustainable materials for production of roller compacted concrete (RCC) for construction of rigid pavements. Natural aggregates replaced with different % of Reclaimed asphalt pavement (RAP) material and red mud is replaced with different % of as a cementitious material in the RCC may reduce the excessive quarrying of raw material and usage of cement. Also, RCC has many advantages, and the main attraction is its low water requirement with high workability and high compaction. This automatically results in more compressive strength. In this paper, the review of the papers has been presented in order to come to an overall understanding of the past findings and current trends and future scope of the RCC for pavement applicationsI.
