The roller compacted concrete (RCC) has been widely used, and the practical concrete crack usually has different crack-depth ratios, but the researches about the fracture toughness formula for RCC rarely consider crack-depth ratio. Here the wedge-splitting fracture test was carried on the RCC specimens with different crack-depth ratios(0.4, 0.5, 0.6). At the same time, the theoretical nominal fracture toughness formula based on the crack-depth ratio was also studied. At the end, the modified and suitable RCC' formula based on crack-depth ratio was gotten by combining the RCC test results with theoretical formula.
