Abstract:Concrete prefabrication appears to be the best solution for the construction of multistory buildings in areas of limited availability and high labor costs, given limited time for project completion and fire resistance, durability, and minimum maintenance re-quirements. Usually prefabrication is associated with factory production and use of available standard precast elements like hollow core slabs or ribbed slabs (single and double T-beams). Such elements, although well proven, have rather limited applicability and are not always the most economic in terms of weight and consumption of materials. The development and application of a new precast concrete syst multistory building construction, designed for on-site prefabrication and erection, is this article. The system consists of onl forms and precast components which construction of a four-story building of co tion, with two lower floors for offices and the two per floors for residential use. [Authors]
