Following the satisfactory response of the unbonded post-tensioned precast concrete jointed
wall system tested for seismic performance as part of the PREcast Seismic Structural Systems (PRESSS) test building, a set of design guidelines was published. The primary objective of the research presented in this report is to evaluate the adequacy of the design guidelines and make appropriate recommendations so that the guidelines can be adopted for design of jointed precast walls in seismic regions. The test data to date on such systems are those collected during the wall direction testing of the PRESSS test building. Hence, this data set has been employed in the validation process.
