Roller compacted concrete (RCC) has been widely preferred in the world recently due to its rapid production rate, low cost and good durability compared to those of the traditional concrete. Having different production techniques from conventional concrete, RCC is used in many areas such as factories, oil stations, airports, industrial floor coverings, roads and dams. There are several methods for the proportioning of RCC mixtures, among which maximum density method is the most preferred one. In this study, the methods of designing of RCC mixtures are explained with an emphasis on the maximum density method. In addition, the previous studies on the RCC mixtures designed with the maximum density method are reviewed and suggestions are made for the future researches.
