Especially to precast concrete structure connections are one of the most essential parts. Connections transfer forces between precast members, so the interaction between precast units is obtained. They are generally the weakest link in the structure. An acceptable performance of precast concrete structure depends especially on the appropriate kind of connections choice, adequate detailing of components and design of the connections is fundamental. It is interesting to study the behavior of connecting elements and to compare different solutions of ductile connections for precast concrete structures in case of horizontal applied force and vertical imposed displacement, as well as those produced by hazards situation, like that earthquake and explosion, whereby topics of structure robustness are carried out. The case of study is an innovative dissipative system of connection between precast concrete elements, usable for buildings and bridges, the investigation of these topics is carried out by F.E.A. by program DIANA with comparison with results obtained independently with ASTER. © 2012 Taylor & Francis Group.
