Abstract: A design procedure was developed to determine the thickness and joint spacing for roller-compacted concrete (RCC) pavements used for airfields, roads, streets, open-storage areas and parking areas. A mechanistic cracking model was developed to estimate RCC tensile restraint stresses as well as the crack width and natural crack spacing. A regression model was developed to predict the expected joint efficiency. Reliability concepts were incorporated to determine variability in expected life. The results of the models and developed programs were verified by comparing them to existing test track thicknesses and natural crack spacings and comparison to conventional concrete design procedures.
