Precast and Prestressed Concrete Directions in Australia and Southeast Asia
This paper outlines, with reference to recent structures, special uses of precast and prestressed concrete in tall building design and construction with the objective of stimulating the development of new structural systems to answer the needs of post modern architecture in high-rise buildings. The emphasis is on examples of the use of precast concrete elements and prestressing as techniques to achieve particular results as distinct from the substitution of prefabricated concrete for insitu concrete or prestressed concrete in lieu of reinforced concrete.
