Mr. Miller has over 5 years as a project geotechnical engineer. Prior to joining BECC, Mr. Miller was a graduate teaching assistant at Auburn University. He was responsible for teaching and performing various geotechnical laboratory tests.His duties have included concrete inspections and testing, compaction testing, and laboratory verification. He has also performed RCC mix design evaluations for the Alabama Department of Transportation. His is proficient in foundation design analysis, pavement design and analysis, erosion control measures, and geotechnical laboratory testing. He was also involved in research projects consisting of light weight aggregate, soil swell potentials, geosynthetic evaluation, and on site field testing.
Roller Compacted Concrete (RCC)
When comparing roller compacted concrete to traditional concrete, the main benefit for the use of RCC is the speed of construction and use. RCC becomes a cost effective alternative if the size of the area to be paved is greater than 6000 square yards, and has very little obstacles in the area. Unlike traditional concrete, RCC doesn’t need reinforcing steel, and can typically have a greater spacing of saw cuts. Another benefit of RCC is that the area can typically be open within a week of the material being placed. Sometimes areas can be open the same day as placement.
