When Tindall set out to become an industry leader in precast concrete, we knew that producing the highest-quality products on time and within budget was only our baseline. We wanted to push precast further. Now, more than 50 years later, we’re engineering
Concrete structures do not require coating or painting for regular appliions as protection for weathering compared to steel or wooden structures where it is inevitable. Coating are to be replaced and redone on a routine basis making the maintenance cost for concrete …
As all types of buildings receive daily wear and tear, and many others can house thousands of people at any given time, these structures must last through years of constant use. Precast concrete buildings can be designed for 100-year service life with minimal upkeep.
Precast concrete structures may be used to house equipment, cables, service connections and splices for the distribution system. For non-network vaults, a fixed ladder is required when the vault floor exceeds 12 feet 6 inches below finished grade. For network

RECENT ADVANCES IN SHEAR, TORSION AND BOND IN REINFORCED AND PRESTRESSED CONCRETE This paper summarises the papers presented at the International Conference on Shear, Torsion and Bond, in Reinforced and Prestressed Concrete, held at the PSG College of Technology in Coiatore in January, 1969.
Concrete is chosen over wood as a construction material. It is a durable and cost-effective material which is a necessity for underground use. Concrete is a sustainable choice for residential and commercial projects. The strength of concrete increases over time.
5/11/2011· - Reservoirs and similar structures may be economically built in prestressed concrete. The latter may be either wrapped round the wall with a special wire winding machine which tensions the wire as it is applied; or tendons may be laid round the wall or cast into the wall sheaths, and subsequently stressed with jacks.

24/7/2020· Conventional prestressed concrete—often used in high-load bearing structures such as bridges— places steel reinforcement under stress before the concrete is poured. The concrete, however, must maintain encase the steel with a certain clearance to prevent the corrosion, which requires a larger overall amount of concrete.
1/7/1991· External post-tensioning (EPT) has been successfully applied to repair or retrofit about 30 concrete structures in the United States. With EPT, tendons are used on the outside of a steel, concrete, or wood structure to bolster its strength. Cores are drilled through

Precast concrete is created by pouring concrete into a mold and allowing it to harden in a controlled area. No wind, water, weather, or temperature variations are able to get to the concrete during its creation, meaning that possible design flaws present in other types of concrete are rendered impossible.
