An attempt to estimate the displacement demands of precast cantilever columns has been presented here. The purpose of the findings presented is to set up a more reliable design philosophy based on dynamic displacement considerations instead of using acceleration spectrum based design which initiates the action with unclear important assumptions such as the initial stiffness, displacement ductility ratios etc. The sole aim of this chapter is to define a procedure for overcoming the difficulties rising right at the beginning of the traditional design procedure.
