Abstract:
Design, fabrication, and erection of precast and prestressed floor and roof beams and slabs of lightweight expanded shale concrete are described. A discussion of the lastic modulus of expanded shale concrete is based on measured camber at prestressing. Cost data on the beams and slabs and a yard test of one prestressed beam are included.
