The framing arrangement generally referred to as thin-shell precast concrete has been the subject of many inquiries from engineers and builders. Some of the questions indicate that the systcm is not as yet fully understood or properly distinguished from conventional precast concrete. Others, who contemplate the utilization of this new method of construction, express some concern regarding certain phases of the novel technique. Still others want to know more about the actual applications and the experiences and opinions of the users. The following introductory notes, together with five papers arranged in the form of a symposium, are presented to furnish timely information on this type of construction.
