The paper reports the results of an experimental s;tudy undertaken to develop a suitable cast-in-situ moment resisting vertical connection between two intersecting precast concrete sandwich panels (PCSP). Four types of cast-insitu L-connections have been studied. The reinforcement in the connection is the 5-7mm diameter steel bar extended from the reinforcing wire mesh in the two panets. Eight specimens have beezn cast in total; there being two identical specimens for each type of the connection. The suitability of each connection has been examined as regarded its cracking moment, ultimate moment capacity and ductility measured in terms of the surface strain or change in the included angle between the intersecting panels under gradually increasingly moment. The paper describes the experimental investigation in detail and establishes the superiority of the looped-shape extended bar connection.
