Title: Evaluation of U.S. Shear Strength Provisions for Design of Beam-Column Connections Constructed with High-Strength Concrete
Author(s): E.I. Saqan and M.E. Kreger
Publication: Special Publication
Appears on pages(s): 311-328
Keywords: Beams (supports); columns (supports); cyclic loading; earthquake-resistant
structures; high-strength concrete; shear properties; strength; tests
Abstract:Current US seismic-resistant design provisions for beam-column connections were developed using data from cyclic load tests performed on beam-column connections constructed with concrete strengths of 6000 psi (41.4 MPa) or less. Results of twenty-six beam-column connection tests conducted in Japan and the US are used to evaluate current US provisions for use in design of exterior and interior beam-column connections constructed with concrete strengths exceeding 6000 psi.
