In a typical 8-inch wall panel the concrete wythes are each 2-3/8 inches thick), sandwiching 3-1/4 inches of high R-value insulating foam. The interior and exterior wythes of concrete are held together (through the insulation) with some form of connecting system that is able to provide the needed structural integrity.

Testing of 3/8-inch prestressing strands in precast concrete panels to determine the transfer length showed that the AASHTO provision of 50 times the strand diameter is conservative for these panels. The transfer length in the lightweight concrete panel was slightly higher than the transfer length in the normal weight concrete panels, but both were below the AASHTO criteria.

18/3/2008· Concrete structures are the most popular civil structures. Throughout the life cycle of a concrete structure, many important issues have to be addressed properly to ensure its safe operation. During the construction phase or early age of a concrete structure, strength monitoring is vital to ensure the safe construction of a structure and to determine its readiness for service.

Concrete is a composite material composed of fine and coarse aggregate bonded together with a fluid cement (cement paste) that hardens (cures) over time. In the past limebased cement binders were often used, such as lime putty, but sometimes with other hydraulic cements, such as a calcium aluminate cement or with Portland cement to form Portland cement concrete (named for its visual
