Tests were conducted at the U. S. Army Engineering Waterways Experimental Station to determine the effectiveness of vibratory compaction rollers in the compaction of zero-slump Portland cement concrete pavements. It was determined that the rollers were effective in compacting the dry-mix concrete and that the strength properties, compressive strength and flexural strength, were somewhat higher than would have been obtained with a conventional mix of the same cement content having a slump in excess of 1 in.
