Development and Design of Untopped Precast Concrete Diaphragm Systems for High Seismic Zones (Extension)
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.
