Abstract:
A concrete roof was designed to be wholly precast and of minimum weight. The contractor preferred to cast the thin-sectioned hollow girders in place. His simple and effective methods of placement of the girders I 1/2-in. top and bottom slabs and for the 2-in. side and cross-webs produced thoroughly satis- factory results.
