Title: Reinforced-Concrete Walls for Buildings
Author(s): W.E. Hart
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 123-141
Abstract:The purpose of this paper i s to develop discussion on the use of reinforced-concrete filler or panel walls for buildings and to point out some of the economies to be gained through the use of this construction in place of masonry walls. The construction consists of erecting a reinforced-concrete building of any height and enclosing the building as it is erected with reinforced-concrete walls. The forms for these walls are built in such a manner as to include practically all of the architectural details and trim. When the forms are stripped a monolith stands practically complete except for interior finish. The walls for such a building may be treated in several ways in order to produce the desired color effects.
