Summary Roller compacted concrete dam construction has a history of more than 30 years, with approximately 500 RCC dams completed, or under construction worldwide. Despite having evolved to reach a state of some maturity over this period, the technology continues to develop and while certain aspects can be considered to be undergoing a process of ongoing refinement with increasing experience, in other areas necessary changes to current practice remain in the process of being adopted. The purpose of this book is to make available to all engineers a synopsis of current best practice in the use of roller-compacted concrete for dams. The book will accordingly present a comprehensive review of the state of the art of the design and construction of RCC dams. This book will address design and construction of roller-compacted concrete for dams. Materials selection, concrete mixture proportioning and quality control will also be addressed. Different type of roller compacted concrete mixes (such as high paste and low paste) will be discussed and guidelines on how to select the best mix design will be presented. The book can be used by engineers dealing with design and construction of roller compacted concrete dams as well as researchers and scholars who are investigating and seeking solutions for the existing challenges for developing this type of dam construction.
