Abstract: An experimental research on precast concrete panels, reinforced either by means of ordinary reinforcement or Steel Fibers (SFRC) is herein presented. The research aims at the optimization of the panels geometry by considering the static demand, the production process industrialization, and the weight reduction. One of the main objectives concerns the possibility of replacing the traditional steel mesh fabric, which is normally located at the external faces of the panels, with steel fibers. As for the undertaken experimental campaign, a preliminary goal concerns the development of displacement control loading system and reaction frame for reproducing the effects of wind loading. The experimental results on the first three full scale panels tested are herein presented.
