Abstract:This paper reports on preliminary results of research into the seismic response of large panel precast concrete construction typical of that used in the United States. Seismic . response is being modeled using finite element techniques and an explicit time step integration procedure. The seismic resisting elements of a crosswall system have been isolated to study the role the connection regions may have in seismic response. Results are presented that show the effects associated with rocking type motion and slpage in the horizontal connections of isolated crosswalls.
