Building formed of cast vertical and horizontal members
US 3818660 A
Abstract
An overall building system consisting of field-assembled, precast components, reinforcing means embedded within site-poured concrete that forms portions of the wall and floor surfaces of the building, with the reinforcing means serving to structurally unite the precast concrete components with the site-poured concrete and support the same against tension forces, shear forces, and lateral shafting forces.

Abbott Assistant Examiner-Leslie A. Braun Attorney, Agent, or FirmFreeman & Taylor 5 7] ABSTRACT An overall building system consisting of fieldassembled, precast components, reinforcing means embedded within site-poured concrete that forms portions of the wall and floor surfaces of the building, with the reinforcing means serving to structurally unite the precast concrete components with the sitepoured concrete and support the same against tension forces, shear forces, and lateral shafting forces.

The precast components include vertical load bearing walls each having vertical voids from top to bottom therein, building slabs preferable of half and full thickness adapted to span the bearing walls and receive reinforcing means thereon as well as concrete, precast stairs, an elevator module for each floor of the building, reinforcing means for tension, shear, and lateral shifting prevention purposes, and site-poured concrete first filling the voids of the load bearing wall and then serving as a floor covering for the slabs.
