Innovative seismic connections for precast concrete buildings (2002)
In the previous issue of ELITE a preliminary overview on the seismic design of precast concrete structures has been given. In this contribution we enter the core of the topic, illustrating in more details the technological aspects of innovative solutions adopted to connect structural elements either for frame or shear wall systems. In the next issue, in conclusion, the design aspects of both connections and whole seismic system will be discussed.
