Architectural Precast Concrete Committee
Develops resources for the production and design of architectural precast concrete (e.g. Architectural Precast Concrete Manual)
Develops and reports information on the application of Building Information Modeling for precast concrete structures, while helping the precast industry use the latest technology, and aid in the development of that technology.
Blast Resistance and Structural integrity Committee
Tracks developments in blast resistance and progressive collapse criteria and develops resources for the precast industry to meet the developing requirements. (e.g. Blast Resistance Design Manual)
Building Code Committee
Reviews the ACI Building Code and Model Codes as to their impact on precast and prestressed concrete. Develops committee reports as required on the use and interpretation of these codes and initiate changes in the codes where appropriate. (e.g. Standard Design Practice)
Concrete Materials Technology Committee
Proposes research topics, educates, and develops guidelines and standard practices related to concrete materials technology. The committee also serves as a resource in emerging and existing concrete materials technology. (e.g. SCC Guidelines)
Connection Details Committee
Develops resources on standard connection details, including illustrations, capacity and calculations of listed capacities. Serve as a clearing house for industry connection problems and inquiries. (e.g. Connections Manual)
Monitors the effect of fire codes and rating, test and insurance requirements on precast and prestressed concrete. Provides information which will be of assistance in obtaining realistic fire requirements, fire ratings and insurance rates for precast and prestressed concrete (e.g. Fire Resistance Manual).
FRP Composites Committee
Examines the use of Fiber Reinforced Plastic (FRP) reinforcement for precast and prestressed concrete and provides information on timely developments in the use, availability and behavior of these materials.
Glass Fiber Reinforced Concrete Committee
Develops resources for the production and design of glass fiber reinforced concrete (e.g. GFRC manual).
Hollow Core Slab Producers Committee
To help train and motivate Hollow Core producers in effective marketing of Hollow Core solutions, and initiate and employ any technical matters that effect Hollow Core (e.g. Hollow-core manual)
Industry Handbook Committee
Develops each edition of the PCI Design Handbook. Committee changes with each division (e.g. 8th edition is currently in development)
Journal Advisory Committee
Serves as an advisory group for the PCI Journal and guides its editorial staff regarding technical issues, advertising and circulation promotion, and other pertinent matters
Parking Structures Committee
Reviews current design and detailing practices for precast, prestressed parking structures and identifies and addresses problems in structural performance and durability. Develops reports and recommendations leading to improved design and construction procedures (e.g. Parking Structures Recommended Practice)
Precast Insulated Wall Panels Committee
Develops and updates recommendations for precast sandwich wall panels, with special attention to design recommendations for both cladding and load-bearing panels (e.g. SOA Sandwich Wall Panel Recommended Practice).
Prestressed Concrete Piling Committee
Study current practices in the design, manufacture and installation of prestressed concrete piling and develop technical reports that will help to expand usage and applications of prestressed concrete piling.
Prestressed Concrete Poles Committee
Develops resources for the design, fabrication and installation of prestressed concrete poles.
Prestressing Steel Committee
Reviews, evaluates and report on properties, test data and performance of prestressing steel, including topics such as relaxation, corrosion and fatigue; monitoring ASTM A416 and all other relative ASTM specifications, advocating changes when needed; advising producer members on proper handling, storage, general usage, safe practices, etc.
Reviews and disseminates available data pertaining to precast prestressed concrete earthquake-resistant design and construction, and makes recommendations. Develops industry resources on seismic design (e.g. Seismic Design Manual).
Sustainability Committee (SUS)
Leads and advocates the precast concrete industry’s contribution to developing a sustainable built environment and green building practices. Communicates and promotes the sustainable attributes of precast concrete products, systems, and services. Develops advancements to environmentally sound and sustainable practices in the design, procurement, production, transportation, and erection of precast concrete.
Total Precast Systems Committee
Develops resources to help designers plan and build with integrated precast structural and envelope systems or "total precast buildings"
