Abstract

Precast concrete diaphragm seismic response is examined in experimental research integrating model-based simulation with physical testing. The experimental substructure is the diaphragm critical flexural region of a prototype precast parking structure. This region is expected to undergo significant inelastic flexural deformation, while potentially nonductile regions remain elastic on the basis of capacity design rules from an emerging design methodology. The physical test is conducted at half-scale. The test specimen is detailed using diaphragm reinforcement intended to meet deformability requirements. Predetermined displacement histories are applied to the test specimen on the basis of nonlinear transient dynamic analyses of the prototype structure. The loading history is applied by a test fixture capable of simultaneously providing shear, axial, and moment to the joint. Moment strength, stiffness, rotational deformation capacity, and progressive damage are examined under a sequence of increasing intensity earthquakes. Design recommendations are provided.
