The Department of Civil Engineering has made a research regarding precast concrete structures, elements and connections. Composite action between precast concrete hollow-core slabs with in-situ concrete toppings, floor diaphragm action and precast concrete beam with fiber-reinforced, self-compacting concrete were the main areas of the research. The results revealed that moment capacity is 20-25% higher than the calculated ultimate moment of resistance even if the surface is dry or ponded and wide range of applications for precast concrete used in combination with other structural and material mediums were also assessed. The effect of shrinkage, creep and thermal stresses, a full-scale composites floor slab field was constructed on-site and exposed to the UK weather for two years. Push-off tests were also carried out to evaluate the effects of composite steel beams, and to quantify the influence of biaxial loads on the shear resistance of the studs.
