This chapter deals with the subject of Prestressed Precast Concrete Frame with External Dissipators, such a precast concrete frame consists of non-emulative connections where precast frame members are connected with post-tensioned tendons and externally mounted dissipators. The external dissipators provide additional reinforcing and damper, improving the energy dissipation of the proposed self-centering prefabricated system. This chapter also presents the development of all-steel fuse-type dissipators and evaluates the hysteresis behavior of precast post-tensioned frame connections. Additionally, previous research is introduced in terms of the configuration of fuse-type dissipators, characterizing experiments, theoretical studies, and component tests, providing theoretical and technical support for the promotion and application of prestressed precast concrete frames with external dissipators.
