Description

The objective of this work is to study the influence of temperatures between 0° and 40° F on precast and cast in place structural concrete methodologies, and the purpose for this research is to get a better understanding of concrete costs in climates similar to those in the Northern United States. The variable that is focused on is the temperature change of above 40°F and in between 0° and 40°F. With that variable in mind researchers tested the change in risks associated with overall cost, production rates, and labor hours on site. Researchers have compared individual structural member prices and production rates from employers in the industry who have given input. This data was analyzed individually and in a building information model (BIM) to provide a better understanding of the impact of risks associated with variable changes. From the given data collected the research supported that the precast methodology virtually eliminates most risks that would normally be associated with the cast in place methodology.
