Abstract:Note: 550.1R-01 is Out of Print. However, a newer version of this document exists. This document was replaced by 550.1R-09.
This report provides engineers with a practical guide for detailing precast concrete structures that should meet building code requirements in all seismic regions by emulating cast-in-place reinforced concrete design. This report also provides information that shows how emulative precast concrete structures can address any or all of the provisions in accordance with ACI 318-99, including those of Chapter 21, if special attention is directed to detailing the joints and splices between precast components.
