Abstract:
Outlines and discusses requirements for connections in precast concrete buildings, and shows examples from completed structures where these requirements have been met. A time-proven hypothesis explaining shear behavior at concrete to steel and concrete to concrete interfaces is presented. Examples illustrate beam to column connections using this hypothesis. Suggestions for further study are outlined.
