Abstract

The high vulnerability of precast structures during seismic events is mainly related to the poor performance of the connection systems, among which the beam-to-column connections. The dowel typology is largely used in Europe and a detailed study is required in order to understand its seismic response. The behavior of dowel beam-to-column connections is influenced by a lot of parameters and it can be analyzed through numerical analyses. In this work a FEM model of a typical dowel connection is provided; it is validated by experimental evidences and it is used for several parametric analyses in order to investigate the influence of different parameters on the connection behavior in terms of strength and failure mechanism.
