Rcc Road Constructions (VDCC)
Vacuum dewatered cement concrete (VDCC) roads reduce potholes and in turn reduce/avoid accidents by increasing the compressive strength of concrete roads. The vacuum dewatering method was first initiated and patented by United States of America nearly half a century ago
At Vdf Constructions this process efficiently removes excess water from newly placed, compacted and levelled concrete surfaces. This dewatering will help in better compaction, improve physical behaviour of concrete and also aid in better performance of the road post construction. This method is nowadays widely used in warehouse concrete flooring, concrete road, parking area, production area in industrial buildings etc. This paper also provides a review on concrete flooring of roads using vacuum dewatering concrete technique/tremix method along with its advantages & dis- advantages.
A vacuum dewatering concrete flooring/tremix method can be defined as Vacuum Dewatered Flooring is a special type of Flooring Technique to achieve High Strength, Longer Life, Better Finish and Faster Work. This type of floor is suitable for high abrasion & heavy traffic movement (Singh et al, 2019). Pot holes in a road has led to many accidents and loss of lives.
A report from the Ministry of road transport and highway gives a statistics of the number of accidents and fatalities in the past 6 years. Such problems can be avoided if the construction of the road is done scientifically with all precautions. Vacuum dewatered cement concrete (VDCC) roads reduce potholes and in turn reduce/avoid accidents by increasing the compressive strength of concrete roads.
