Parking Garage Design with Precast/Prestressed Concrete
The web seminar covers a broad range of knowledge needed to successfully plan, design and specify parking garages using precast/prestressed concrete. It covers functional layout considerations including parking occupancy, site layout, parking layout and vertical communication. Fire rating considerations and the importance of design for an open parking garage are discussed. The structural system design for a precast/prestressed concrete parking garage are covered. Gravity load framing with modular precast are reviewed. The vertical elements of the lateral force-resisting system and diaphragm considerations are also reviewed. The seminar concludes with a discussion of several design features and issues specific to parking structures, including warping of floors and drainage, flange connections and joints, expansion joints, pedestrian railing options, connection design for deformation compatibility, volume change effects, and erection issues.

|Speakers||Ned M. Cleland, Ph.D., P.E.|
Dr. Cleland has forty one years of experience in structural analysis, design, research, and engineering management. Dr. Cleland has designed or directed the design of nearly 300 parking garages either as specialty structural engineer or as structural engineer of record and has extensive experience in precast/prestressed design, detailing and construction. He is the immediate past chairman of the Precast/Prestressed Concrete Institute (PCI) technical committee on Parking Garages when the PCI Recommended Practice was updated to the 3rd Edition. He co-authored the PCI Seismic Design Manual with Dr. S.K. Ghosh for the 1st and 2nd Editions. Dr. Cleland is currently a member of the American Concrete Institute Committee 318, and serves on 318-G, the prestressed concrete subcommittee and on 318-H, the seismic design subcommittee. He is a member of ACI 362 on parking garages. He is also currently chairman of the Technical Activities Council of PCI and has served on this committee for eighteen years.
