Held this year in Nashville, Tennessee, the International RCC Dam Seminar and Study Tour is convened to promote and continue the technical evolution of roller compacted concrete in the dam and water resources markets.
Intended for engineering and construction industry professionals involved in heavy civil design and construction worldwide, it will feature a tour and seminars on the latest RCC best practices and project applications by nationally and internationally recognized RCC subject matter experts.
A tour of the Center Hill Dam safety rehabilitation project will be led by representatives from Thalle Construction Company. The project features an RCC gravity dam that will serve as a backup structure to an existing earth saddle dam. The tour will incorporate key site elements—RCC mixing plant, aggregate processing, mix temperature controls, RCC conveyor delivery system, foundation treatments, RCC test section—and include an overview of construction sequencing plans.
