Sustainability and Precast Concrete

2017-4-5  Precast concrete is different because it is made in a factory by highly experienced personnel who apply stringent quality-control measures. In the factory environment, precasters are able to achieve consistency in temperature and moisture and low watercement ratios that are not possible in field-fabricated concrete. Precast concrete can easily attain strengths of 5000 psi to 7000 psi or more, with

Precast Concrete For Sustainability CECR

Introduction. Modern concrete composite is a versatile technological material. The versatility manifests itself in the form of: a) mould-ability ranging from driest roller compacted concrete (RCC) to self-compacting concrete (SCC); b) strength ranging from 5-10 MPa compressive strength for mass concrete to 200 MPa (and higher) grade for Reactive Powder Concrete (RPC).
