Title: Problems and Performance of Precast Concrete Wall Panels
Author(s): Victor F. Leabu
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 287-298
Abstract:The use of prefabricated concrete wall panels for cur- tain walls is gaining popularity in the building industry. However, the precast concrete wall panel in service can cause problems. While most walls of this type ore trouble-free, defects in some precast walls are forcing those concerned to take a closer look at design and con- struction practices. Since concrete is the basic material in the panels, the inherent problems for concrete must be controlled. Varia- tion in color, inefficent U factor, and bulging are prob- lems of precast wall panels inherited from concrete. Cor- rective measures for some of these problems are presented.
