On 8/26 Oswaldo Aiffili of Caracas Venezuela wrote asking about precast concrete
moment frames for seismic applications:

Research on such systems have been jointly conducted in the U.S. by the National
Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) in Washington DC and by Charles
Pankow Builders.  This research lead to an ICBO Evluation Service Report on a
particular type of precast concrete frame where the beam column joints are
post-tensioned together.

More information on this system, which qualifies as an SMF under the Uniform
Building code can be obtained from NIST in Washington, D.C. and also from the
ICBO Evaluation Service in Whittier California.

Also, an ACI task group, recently published a special report on how to develop
qualifications for other types of beam-column connections.  The special task
group report is available from ACI.
