Precast concrete is a type of concrete that is mixed, cast, and cured off-site, usually in a factory setting with reusable moulds. To build a full structure, precast concrete elements can be linked to other elements. Wall panels, beams, columns, floors, stairwells, pipes, and tunnels are all examples of structural components.

Applications of Precast Concrete

Because of its strength, durability, and affordability, reinforced concrete is commonly utilised for structural structures. 

The following are some examples of how precast concrete is used:

To make beams, columns, floor slabs, foundations, and other structural members for buildings.

To make wall or cladding panels for buildings.

To make precast pre-stressed elements for buildings.

To make components for infrastructure projects: elements such as bridge spans, or metro line viaducts are often precast in a casting yard.

To make products such as precast water tanks, septic tanks, drainage chambers, railway sleepers, floor beams, boundary walls and water pipes.

As it can be moulded into any shape, it can also be used to create one-off unusual forms such as boats, sculptures and so on.

Precast Concrete with Steel Fiber

Steel fibres have a reasonably high strength and modulus of elasticity, and the strongly alkaline matrix protects them from corrosion. Mechanical anchorage via surface roughness or deformation can improve the fiber-matrix bond. Steel fibres for reinforcing concrete must meet ASTM A8203’s minimum tensile strength, bending limits, and tolerances.
