Abstract:Equipment, methods, and materials used in the field casting of thin-shell precast panels are described. The contractor's basic problem is outlined; experimental operations resulting in final method are touched briefly, together with fairly complete description of the methods used. While primarily concerned with casting of units, certain erection roblems are so related with the casting that they are briefly brought in. The effect on casting economy is also very closely related to architectural and engineering design. Therefore, reccommendations and conclusions are included which it is believed will increase the efficiency and economy of precast panel construction.
