Precast, prestressed, tilt-up, cast-in-place, and post-tensioned concrete are commonly used in podium construction. It is inevitable that the cold-formed steel design engineer will sooner or later be challenged with attaching cold-formed steel framing to podium construction. Towards this end, it is important for the designer to have a basic understanding of common precast concrete components and why connecting to them can be such a challenge. This Tech Note discusses the types of precast concrete components as well as the cold-formed steel anchorage options.
