No-Fines Concrete is a concrete made by excluding fine material that is sand or Fine aggregate. The major benefit of using no fines concrete as a pavement is to manage storm water generally in urban areas. No-Fines Concrete is a complex material obtained by mixing Coarse aggregate, cement, water and some admixtures in proper proportions. No-Fines Concrete can be used as hard shoulder material for pavements, also for slope stability etc. As No-Fines concrete has high drainage properties it can be used as a Sub-Base material and Base-Course Materials for Flexible pavements as well as rigid pavements. In this paper, a review is done to study various mechanical properties such as Compressive strength, Flexural strength, permeability density etc. of No-Fines concrete. In addition, No-Fines Concrete gives high thermal insulating properties and helps in improving skid resistance due to rough texture at top. Hence, the paper review’s about application of No-Fines concrete as rigid pavement by making it cost effective and by eliminating fine material.
