This paper presents the results of nine prototype specimens tested to investigate the behavior and capacity of post-tensioned horizontal connections typically used for precast loadbearing shear wall panels subjected to monotonic shear loading. Shear walls supporting hollow-core floor slabs were included. Two different levels of load normal to the connection were used to simulate the effects of gravity and permanent loading conditions. Test results were used to refine and calibrate rational… 
Horizontal connections for precast concrete shear wall panels under cyclic shear loading
The performance of precast concrete loadbearing shear wall panel structures during an earthquake relies on the behavior and integrity of the connections between the panels. Design of these structures
CONNECTIONS FOR PRECAST CONCRETE PANELS USED FOR HIGH RISE STRUCTURES
Precast load-bearing shear wall panels are used extensively for high-rise construction because of the ease and speed of assembly, and the high quality of the precast panels. The connections between
