—The experimental study presented hereis based on
the seismic performance investigation of precast reinforced
concrete wall panels (PRCWP), post-damage strengthening
using different materials and different anchorage systems. Both
wall panels have an initial small window opening, but the
second panel has the opening enlarged into a large window
opening in order to investigate also the cut-out effect. The
behavior and failure details are presented and analyzed for
both unstrengthened and post-damage strengthened situations.
The economic aspect will also be discussed for each of the
strengthening systems used.
