The objectives of the work supported by the CPF grant were:
to develop and demonstrate untopped and topped precast diaphragm systems that will provide good performance in regions of high seismic hazard
to produce a design and detailing procedure for these systems for high seismic zones
to codify this design procedure and create design aids
Note: The Charles Pankow Foundation research grant supported concluding phases of work resulting from a larger, integrated project supported in previous years by the National Science Foundation and the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute. Further information on this larger work can be provided by Professor Robert Fleischman, University of Arizona: rfleisch@email.arizona.edu.
