Precast Concrete Buildings in Seismic Areas - Practical Aspects
Author: fib Task Group 6.10
Publisher: International Federation of Concrete
ISBN: 978-2-88394-118-2
This bulletin is the first joint publication between fib and PCI. It is mainly addressed to engineers who are involved in the design, construction, and/or production of precast buildings. It is also intended for civil engineers and architects who want to become acquainted with the main principles of design, detailing and construction, and in general, the behavior of different precast structural systems under seismic actions. The scope is broad and does not focus on design issues. The main principles of the seismic design of different structural systems, their behavior and their construction techniques are presented through rules, construction stages and sequences, procedures and details.
