Title: Pumice Concrete Panels
Author(s): John Carmichael
Publication: Concrete International
Appears on pages(s): 31-32
Abstract:Development of lightweight pumice concrete with a 28-day strength greater than 3500 psi (24133 kPa) may significantly increase the use of concrete in residential construction. Precast panels made from this concrete were used extensively in the Rockwood residence on Hayden Island, Portland, Ore.
