Soil Stabilization and RCC Pavement Seminars Offered in Seven Texas Venues


The Cement Council of Texas is presenting regional seminars on proper design and construction techniques for soil/base stabilization with cement and roller compacted concrete (RCC) pavements. These full-day events are scheduled as follows:

  • Sept. 15, 2015 - DFW Dallas - Mesquite Arts Center
  • Sept. 16, 2015 - DFW Ft. Worth - Cabela's
  • Oct. 8, 2015 - Beaumont - MCM Elegante Hotel
  • Nov. 5, 2015 - Laredo - Texas A&M International University
  • Nov. 18, 2015 - El Paso - University of Texas at El Paso
  • Dec. 8, 2015 - Lubbock - Cagle Steak & BBQ
  • Dec. 10, 2015 - San Angelo - West Texas Training Center

The seminars will bring essential design and construction information to public agencies, consulting engineers, construction professionals, and owners who are interested in building low cost/low maintenance pavements.  

The soil stabilization portion will include training on full-depth reclamation of existing asphalt pavements--saving 25-50% cost (and time) compared to removal/replacement.  Additionally, subgrade stabilization (for both granular soils and clays) and cement-treated base will be covered, showing how cement subgrade and base stabilization can reduce maintenance, lower initial cost, and utilize local materials.

The RCC pavement section will introduce this type of rigid pavement to decision-makers, and discuss what types of projects--from industrial pavements to city streets--are best suited to this fast-emerging technology.  Attendees will learn design methods, specification, standard development, and production/construction methods.  Actual case studies of public roads and private developments will illustrate how RCC can save money and improve pavement performance.

Seminar instructors will draw on their decades of experience in these technologies.  

Sign up now for these low-cost seminars.

5 Public Works Agency Road Problems That CCT’s Soil Stabilization/RCC Seminars Can Fix

August 27, 2015

Are you a public works road engineer, superintendent or manager who needs to stretch your money, your manpower, and your time? Are you plagued by any of these 5 flexible pavement problems?

Using River Gravel in RCC Pavements

August 18, 2015

What is the best aggregate to use for roller-compacted concrete pavement construction? One universal truth arguably impacts construction more than any other factor. The quality and cost of a project are directly influenced by the quality and availability of construction materials.

Dry Summer = Subgrade Shrinkage, Asphalt Cracking

July 30, 2015

Extended periods of high temperatures and low rainfall wreak havoc asphalt pavements, particularly those on expansive clay subgrades. Here are some ways to mitigate the deep longitudinal cracking that often occurs.

The Role of Intelligent Compaction in Cement-Based Pavement Applications

July 23, 2015

Intelligent compaction (IC) refers to the continuous, real-time monitoring of a roller’s effectiveness in achieving a specified density, stiffness, etc. This continuous feedback approach to pavement construction has tremendous implications in the realm of quality assurance. As IC makes its way from state-of-the-art to state-of-the-practice, all parties will likely benefit from its implementation.
