Abstract: ▪ The frequently used precast structural system addressed in this paper consists of an assemblage of slender cantilever columns tied together with a roof system, which is essentially rigid in its own plane. The full-scale model of a system, tested within the reported work, is shown in Figure 1.
▪ The connections of the investigated system were designed using “capacity design” procedure. The adequate strength of connections and the in-plane rigidity of the roof system were later demonstrated by full-scale tests. Therefore it was possible to analyse the system as an assemblage of rigidly connected cantilever columns. Consequently the risk study essentially refers to very slender cantilever columns (having shear-span ratio 12.5) representing a class of one-storey industrial buildings with strong connections.
▪ PSD and cyclic experiments of full-scale models were made, adequate numerical model was proposed, seismic risk was estimated and relevant code requirements for existing and new buildings were discussed.
