Title:Measured Hysteresis Relationships for Small-Scale Beam-Column Joints
Author(s):Kreger, M.E.; Abrams, Daniel P.
Reinforced concrete -- Testing
Abstract:Interior and exterior-joint specimens were tested under cyclic loads to obtain hysteresis relationships. The specimens were similar to interior and exterior beam-column assemblies in ten-story three-bay frames tested dynamically on the University of Illinois Earthquake Simulator. Test variables were the loading pattern, specimen type and amount of beam reinforcement. Descriptions of fabrication, the test setup, instrumentation and testing procedure are presented. Specimen behavior was observed by measurements of load-displacement relationships, patterns of crack propagation and properties of the concrete and longitudinal reinforcement.
