Numerical Performance Assessment of Modular Two-Way Precast Slab Systems

The overarching goal of this partnership is to develop a modular accelerated building construction system that is suitable for implementation into the Canadian marketplace. The use of the post-tensioned, and friction-based, connections for modular system connections is atypical of North American design procedures and the reliance on these connections for resisting sustained gravity loads is generally not supported in existing Canadian building design standards.
