Pin-connected precast concrete structures are widely used in some European countries of moderate seismicity. However, this structural system is not earthquake resistant because it does not have enough lateral stiffness or lateral-load resistance. Lack of a rigid diaphragm at the roof level imposes severe forces to connections.
