State of the Art of Precast/Prestressed Concrete Sandwich Wall Panels, Second Edition
Author: PCI Committee on Precast Sandwich Wall Panels
Publisher: PCI
This report is an update of the original state-of-the-art report published in the March–April and May–June 1997 issues of the PCI Journal. The original report was later published as a reprint (JR-403). After the publication of the original report, the use of precast/prestressed concrete sandwich wall panels became more widespread in the United States. Also, the publication led to a better understanding of the proper use, performance, and technical aspects of these specialty panels. This report updates both the text and the associated design examples to current codes and design practices. In addition, newer, more-applicable photographs of the manufacturing process and completed, in-place panels have replaced the previous photographs.
