Precast Concrete Security and Sound Barrier Walls
Security and sound barrier walls play an important role in sustaining the safety and livability of communities. They separate incompatible uses, protect vital infrastructure, provide security from intrusion, and can even become protective in some extreme weather. They are available in different formats: panels that are installed between support columns made from either steel or concrete H-beams embedded in caisson footings, or with integrally cast column and panel wall sections that are supported by steel I-beams embedded into caisson footings and extending up into the column portion of the wall section to provide structural integrity. This course examines the design and construction details of both types.
