Abstract:
Description of method producing thin-shell precast concrete sections by adapting assembly line techniques and securing maximum use of lightweight plastic forms. Covers briefly form design, reinforcing assembly, form assembly, concrete placing and curing, stripping, job applications, ans costs. The panels are a U.S. Navy Bureau of Yards and Docks design, 4 1/2 ft wide, 20 ft long, with 1 1/4 in. shell thickness, and 8 in. deep side beams. The forms are a one-piece steel-reinforced five-ply laminated glass-fiber form of approximately 160 sq ft.
