Referring to the PCI study that the discussers are now completing, the author notes that summer temperatures outside parking structures are on the order of 10 F (5.6 C) hotter than ambient temperatures inside the parking structure. Interestingly, taken together, the author's recommendations result in a calculated thermal shortening for precast concrete structures that is identical to that computed using the current handbook, which includes PCI's 25% reduction for thermal lag.
