Diaphragm Seismic Design Methodology
The DSDM project is a collaboration of the University of Arizona (UA), UCSD, LU, and the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI). The research is a closely integrated analytical and experimental effort intended to significantly advance knowledge of the seismic behavior of precast floor diaphragms with the specific objective of producing an appropriate seismic design methodology for eventual code implementation.
As part of the University of Arizona, Lehigh University, and University of California San Diego collaboratory,research project Development of a Seismic Design Methodology for Precast Diaphragms a second phase of experimental research is proposed by Lehigh University (LU). This phase will examine the performance of mutiple diaphragm connection details.
