What is the meaning of precast concrete?
Unlike concrete that is poured on-site, high-quality precast concrete is produced in a controlled factory environment using advanced manufacturing techniques.Reinforcement is placed into reuseable and adjustable moulds, and concrete is poured, vibrated and cured. If specified, architectural finishes (such as honing, polishing or staining) may then be applied while still in the factory. The finished precast elements are then transported to the site and then craned into position.Precast concrete is a highly versatile product available in a vast range of different sizes, shapes, and cove concrete finish. Precast products are used in a variety of applications, including buildings, civil construction, raft slab, and landscaping.
Various Benefits of Precast Concrete Construction ?
Some of the benefits of Precast Concrete Construction are as below.• Very rapid speed of building.• Good quality control.• The entire building can be precast-walls, floors, beams, etc.• Rapid construction on site.• High quality because of the controlled conditions in the factory.• Prestressing is easily done which can reduce the size and number of the structural members.

Pre-cast concretes are manufactured in a pre-cast plant or on site (tilted-up construction). Cast in steel moulds with precise dimension. Very good quality control. Delivered and erected on site. Cast in-situ are constructed on site using fresh concrete from trucks and placed by workers. Quality Control is the responsibility of the site manager.

When a speaker compares an abstract idea to a concrete image she or he is using the figure of speech known as?
When a speaker compares an abstract idea to a concrete image, they are using the figure of speech known as personification. Ideas or concepts are harder to grasp than concrete images. Comparing the two and giving the idea a solid quality, helps to understand the meaning. It can also be seen as a theoretical comparison, or a theoretical figure of speech. Much depends on the circumstances, such as does the comparison make commonsense. It can also be termed a "what if" comparison. For example, what would have been the result of the Confederacy ( a solid, concrete image ) had gained its independence? ( a theoretical comparison )

What is a cement anchor?
A cement anchor is a general term to describe a fastner that is attached to concrete. Common concrete anchors have a lead tip that mushrooms and "grabs" the concrete. Usually a hole is first drilled into the concrete. Then a concrete anchor is driven into the hole using a hammer. This allows for attaching wood or metal to concrete.
