Seismic design of precast concrete buildings (2001)
This preliminary paper on the seismic design of precast concrete structures defines the beginning of Dr. Stefano Pampanin’s cooperation with the magazine ELITE. In the following issues the recent results of an extended analytical-experimental research program, conducted in the U.S. to investigate and develop alternative solutions for the use of precast concrete in seismic areas, will be presented and more deeply discussed. The research results highlight interesting prospects for the future, as demonstrated by significant practical applications, already underway. In the series of contributions, an overview of the topic will be given, with reference to code provisions aspects, design concepts and structural features. The different proposed solutions for both frame and shear wall systems will be presented in details.

Seismic performance assessment of reinforced concrete buildings with precast concrete floor systems. Peng, Brian Hsuan-Hsien (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2009)In the seismic design of reinforced concrete frames, plastic hinges are allocated to beams such that a ductile beam-sway mechanism will form in preference to other less ductile mechanisms in the event of a major earthquake. ...
