The Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) is conducting a large “area of emphasis” research project on precast concrete diaphragms. The project has an ultimate goal of developing a comprehensive seismic design methodology for precast/
prestressed concrete floor diaphragms. The project has been coined “DSDM” (Diaphragm Seismic Design Methodology).
