ICOLD Bulletin 177 'Roller-Compacted Concrete Dams' presents the state-of-the-art on roller-compacted concrete technology for dams, incorporating the advances of the RCC technology for dams over the last 15 years since the previous Bulletin on the topic was released in 2003. Hence, the present ICOLD Bulletin 177 supersedes ICOLD Bulletin 126 ('Roller-compacted concrete dams - State of the art and case histories', published in 2003) and ICOLD Bulletin 75 ('Roller-Compacted Concrete for Gravity Dams' published in 1989). While roller-compacted concrete technology could have still been considered a new technology in 2003, it is now true to say that construction by roller-compaction has become the standard approach for large concrete gravity dams.

This Bulletin addresses all aspects of the planning, design, construction and performance of RCC in dams. Mixture proportioning and quality control are discussed and a comprehensive listing of references is included. Many aspects of RCC in dams have become better understood since the publication of Bulletin No 126 and the present Bulletin contains less information on the particular approaches applied in different countries, but includes more comprehensive information particularly in relation to design, mixture proportioning and construction. With greater understanding, it has further been possible to highlight more definitively the requirements of successful RCC dams, as well as the pitfalls and difficulties that can be associated with RCC dam design and construction.

Le Bulletin CIGB 177, intitule " Barrages en Beton Compacte au Rouleau " presente les dernieres avancees en matiere de technologie du beton compacte au rouleau pour les barrages integrant les progres de la technologie BCR pour les barrages au cours des 15 dernieres annees, depuis que le dernier bulletin sur le sujet a ete publie en 2003. Par consequent, le bulletin 177 remplace le bulletin 126 (" Barrages en beton compacte au rouleau - Technique actuelle et exemples ", publie en 2003) et le bulletin 75 (" Beton compacte au rouleau pour barrages-poids - Technique actuelle " publie en 1989). Alors que la technologie du BCR pourrait encore etre consideree comme une nouvelle technologie en 2003, il est maintenant vrai de dire que la construction par le compactage par rouleaux est devenue l'approche standard pour les grands barrage-poids en beton.

Ce bulletin aborde tous les aspects de la planification, de la conception, de la construction et de la performance du BCR dans les barrages. Le dosage du melange et le controle de la qualite sont discutes et une liste exhaustive des references est incluse. De nombreux aspects du BCR dans les barrages sont mieux compris depuis la publication du Bulletin no 126. Le present bulletin contient moins d'informations sur les approches particulieres appliquees dans differents pays, mais comprend des informations plus completes notamment en ce qui concerne la conception, le dosage du melange et la construction. Avec une plus grande comprehension, il a ete possible de mettre en evidence les exigences des barrages en BCR reussis, ainsi que les pieges et les difficultes qui peuvent etre associes a la conception et la construction du barrage en BCR.
