Title: Some Problems in Structural Framing of Precast Concrete Houses
Author(s): A. Amirikian
Publication: Journal Proceedings
Appears on pages(s): 797-810
Abstract:The use of precast concrete elements in large-scale housing projects places special emphasis on the importance of the structural framing. To take full ad-vantage of benefits inherent in the precast technique, it is necessary that the design of the framing be given the same care as that generally accorded to the structural analysis and design of any large and important structure. To this end, criteria of design and the arrangement of framing are predicated on theoretical as well as on practical considerations, to assure adequacy of strength, adaptability to mass production and economy of construction. Some of the problems encountered in the design of the framing are discussed in this paper, and the application of the basic principles is illustrated by two examples outlining the arrangement and details of framing of two types of low-cost dwellings.
