Guide to Emulating Cast-in-Place Detailing for Seismic Design of Precast Concrete Structures
|Publication Date:||1 February 2009|
The purpose of this guide is to give the reader a working knowledge of emulation and emulative detailing to meet requirements in current codes. The term "emulation" has become a common concept for designers working with precast concrete systems, but has also been misinterpreted in relation to jointed systems. This guide shows a variety of emulative details and describes how they are used. Design is basically that of monolithic cast-in-place reinforced concrete converted to precast members, so no special design knowledge is required to use emulative details.
