Description

This guide presents recommendations for precast concrete wall panels. It should be used with ACI 318-08, “Building Code Requirements for Structural Reinforced Concrete,” which is legally binding when adopted by the local authority. This guide discusses the basic principles of design, tolerances, materials, fabrication, installation, quality requirements, and testing.

Keywords: admixtures; aggregates; architectural concrete; coatings; cracking (fracturing); curing; deflection; design; drying shrinkage; fabrication; formwork; inspection; installation joints (junction); precast concrete panels; repairs; sandwich panels; sealants; structural design; surface defects; tolerances; volume change.
