Title: Suggested Design of Joints and connections in Precast Structural Concrete
Author(s): ACI-ASCE Committee 512
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 921-938
Abstract:This report presents methods by which joints for use in precast concrete construction may be designed. The recommendations are intended to help provide that all joints and connections perform their function at all stages of loading without overstress and with proper safety factors against failure due to overload. The joints and connections discussed are those between precast members, between precast membersand cast-in-place concrete members, and between pre-cast members and structural steel members.
