Recommendations for the design and detailing of ductile prestressed concrete frames for seismic loading

  • The seismic committee of the N.Z. prestressed concrete institute

Abstract

This document includes recent research information and suggests minimum requirements for the design of prestressed and partially prestressed concrete frames to resist seismic forces. They are based on ACI 318-71 where appropriate and shall be read in conjunction with NZS 4203, and are supplementary to NZSR 32. The recommendations are not to be read as a code of practice.
