Further experiments on the seismic performance of structural concrete beam-column joints designed in accordance with the principles of damage avoidance

Recent research on jointed unbonded post-tensioned precast concrete frames has demonstrated their superior seismic resistance. Inelastic rotation generated during large earthquake motions is accommodated through gap opening and closing at the beam-to-column connections in the frame. By applying the...
