Title: Some Arguments for a New Type of Reinforced Concrete
Author(s): R. Taylor
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 96-102
Keywords: composite construction (concrete and steel); concrete construction;
construction costs; economics; multistory buildings; precast concrete;
prestressing steels; reinforced concrete.
Abstract:From a consideration of costs it is shown that the traditional methods of combining steel and concrete leave something to be desired. The relative advantages and disadvantages of the traditional forms are shown to lead to a new type of reinforced concrete. Examples of design facilitate a comparison with traditional reinforced concrete and composite construction. These show that the proposed method would be most advantageous for multistory structures in which it is desired to use precast flooring units in conjunction with an in situ concrete frame for which beams of minimum depth are required.
