Title: Precast structures for multistory buildings achieved with rigid joint frames
Author(s): Burón Maestro, M.; Fernández-Ordóñez Hernández, D.; Gómez Sanz, L.
Appears on pages(s): 97 - 101
Abstract:It is shown an example of a structure of six levels built with reinforced concrete and prestressed concrete elements, precast in the factory (beams, columns and deck slabs), placed and fixed together on site to form real rigid joint frames. It is achieved thus a rigid joint frame structure, able to resist horizontal forces. This permits us to avoid the construction of shear walls in the building.
