Results of an experimental study on the structural behavior of exterior beam-column joints made of high-strength concrete and subjected to large reversal loads are presented. Variables examined were the joint shear stress and the ratio of transverse reinforcement. Based on the experimental results, it was shown that properly designed and detailed high-strength reinforced beam-column joints display ductile hysteretic behavior.
