Precast / Prestressed Concrete Pavement. Field demonstrations of FHWAs system for Precast Prestressed Concrete Pavement used by a number of State DOTs. The video examines the feasibility of using precast pretensioned panels for roadway segments that are assembled on-site and post-tensioned.
The essential concepts for FHWAs precast prestressed concrete pavement system can summarized as follows: •Precasting is performed utilizing the facilities already familiar to bridge engineers. •Stockpiling of precast panels provides for rapid delivery as needed. •Constructability and performance are facilitated by the design features of the precast panels.
