Abstract: With the recent game changing technologies, Prefinished Prefabricated Volumetric Construction (PPVC) has become the default method for high-rise construction. The use of PPVC could improve the productivity on-site and at the same time, reduce the project duration and cost. As this approach is relatively new, there is no design code specifically on this PPVC system. Hence, this final year project is mainly focused on performance monitoring of PPVC connectors (wire loop and key bar) in reinforced concrete (RC) modular system. Two experiments will be carried out namely Direct Shear Test to simulate the sudden loss of module at the level below and Separation Test to simulate the separation force experienced by the PPVC wall. Various types of sensors will be used to measure the strain and displacement in real-time throughout the experiment for analysis. Thus, this report will enhance the understanding on PPVC connectors and its failure behaviour under different types of loading. In addition, ANSYS simulation was also carried out concurrently and it will be used to further complement the results obtained from laboratory tests. The comparison and discussion will be covered under another report, CT-10AB-2. This final year project topic consists of two reports namely, CT-10AB-1 and CT-10AB-2 with this report being CT-10AB-1.
