This is the first in a series of two NEES/EERI Research-to-Practice webinars discussing NEES Projects and their affiliated studies on architectural precast façade. There is no cost to attend this webinar. To register go to https://nees.org/webinar. PDHs will be available from EERI after the webinar for $30.
Three major NEES projects were completed in which the performance was investigated of architectural precast concrete facades. This webinar will discuss the individual experimental programs and the primary findings from each of the three projects. These projects include two major shake table test programs (BNCS test program at NEES@UCSD and TIPS test program at E-Defense) and one static full-scale experimental program (Pathways test program at NEES@Berkeley). The webinar will explain the façade test specimen designs, loading protocols, types of performance observed and the behavior of the panel specimens for each test program.
