The American Concrete Institute (ACI) 116R defines RCC as °»Concrete compacted by roller compaction; concrete that in its unhardened state will support a roller while being compacted°…. RCC as a pavement material has been gaining acceptance over the past years. Common river sand has become more expensive due to excessive cost and depletion of the natural resource. In such a situation the M-sand can be an alternative material to river sand. Hence in the present study a control mix was established for RCC aiming for flexural strength of 5N/mm2 proportioning of the materials was done based on soil compaction concepts specified in ACI211- 3R-19.This paper also presents the effect of manufacture sand (0% to 100% replacement with natural sand) on strength properties of RCC. Test results indicate that the increase in flexural strength levels at increasing levels of fine aggregate replacement by M-sand. The study also revealed that addition of M-sand reduces the cement and fine aggregate contents in RCC mixtures.
