Prestressed concrete - Wikipedia

Prestressed concrete is a form of concrete used in construction. It is substantially "prestressed" during production, in a manner that strengthens it against tensile forces which will exist when in service.: 3–5 This compression is produced by the tensioning of high-strength "tendons" located within or adjacent to the concrete and is done to improve the performance of the concrete in service.

Benefits of Precast – Wells Concrete

Precast concrete structures provide superior resistance to fires, natural disasters, insects and mold. Like no other building material, its resistance to rain, wind damage, earthquakes, termites and decay provides lower maintenance and insurance costs. It can also withstand many winters of freeze-thaw cycles better than other building materials.
