A new kind of the self-centering post-tensioned precast connection(simplified as PTED) is proposed based on the concept of the earthquake resilient structure. The PTED connection is composed by precast beams, columns and angles that are connected by frictional high-strength bolts and tendons. Tendons, beams, columns and angles could be recognized as the components of the connection. In order to study the effect of components on the performance of the connection, a series of the low reversed… CONTINUE READING
