The use of precast concrete materials as structural elements has become common practice. Precast concrete material offers various advantages over cast in place concrete, including energy-saving, pollution reduction, increased labor productivity, high material durability, reduced formwork and scaffolding usage, faster construction, and the ability to carry out construction in any weather conditions. However, there are some disadvantages in assembling precast elements, particularly in connection areas, which serve as the main structure of a building. Several studies have been conducted to develop connection types for precast concrete. Some of these include dry connections and wet connections, each with their own advantages and disadvantages. To mitigate the weakness of both connection types, many studies are currently focusing on developing a combination of dry and wet connections known as Hybrid Connections. Various developments have been made in the Hybrid connection system.
