The results of three full-scale reinforced concrete beam-column joint specimens subjected to one- and two-directional reversed loading are presented in this paper. The influences on aseismic behavior of beam-column joints with different loading systems and monolithic slabs have been analyzed. Also, the relevant provisions for joints in the Chinese design code for reinforced concrete structures have been checked by test results, and some recommendations for beam-column joint design are given.
