This thesis studied the possibility of Roller Compacted Concrete Pavement RCCP use by the United States Air Force, RCCP is a dry, zero-slump concrete paving mixture. The low cost, high strength, and quick placement of RCCP make it extremely attractive as an alternate construction and repair method for USAF pavements. This project accomplished five objectives. First, a thorough review of the literature provided a list of the advantages and disadvantages of RCCP. Second, a survey determined the RCCP knowledge level of a small group of USAF Pavement Engineers. Third, another survey established the relative importance of certain pavement characteristics in various USAF pavement applications. Fourth, a decision support model was created to assist in the selection of candidate U.S. Air Force RCCP projects. Finally, using this model, the Strategic Air command project database was searched to provide a list of recommended RCCP projects.
