Precast Concrete Panel Cracking

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

The panels were not green, they had been sitting in the yard for 7-10 days prior to erecting.  They had tested to 6000psi prior to being removed from the yard, but were only at 3500psi when taken off the bed.

They did not show any signs of cracking until recently during a long period of heavy rain.  When the structure started to leak the investigation began and found the exterior cracking.
