Almost 3 mil. $ have been spent to assemble a building with 3 floors with tees and hollowcore connected with VECTOR™, with and without cast in place, on a platform to simulate an earthquake of magnitude 7.1 to verify the connection resisteance:

Cyclic Horizontal Shear with Tension
The connection can resist seismic forces warping for cyclic loads in a ductile way, and if needed the behaviour of the floor is stiff diaphragm.
OUT OF PLANE SHEAR TEST
The connection guarantee a uniform deformation of the floor.
The connection can resist wind and seismic forces. It can also di absorb local stress due to thermal variation without generating tensions and breaking in the concrete.
