Alternative Materials and Configurations for Prestressed-precast Concrete Pile Splice Connection

The objective of this project is to explore alternative pile splice connection configurations and materials and to investigate the feasibility of these connections in comparison with the existing epoxy dowel splice for prestressed-precast concrete piles. This research project focuses on the use of analytical modeling and computational means for investigation on the structural behavior for newly developed conceptual designs. Future activities, within a separate project, will include performing experimental verification of the newly developed details.
