Scale relationships of concrete beam-column joints

Paul Robert Philleo, Daniel Paul Abrams

Research output: Book/Report/Conference proceedingTechnical report


The objective of this study was to investigate the ability of reduced-scale models of reinforced concrete beam-column joints to predict the response of large-scale
prototypes. Six large-scale (approximately three quarter scale) specimens and six medium-scale (approximately one quarter scale) specimens were tested. Data from these tests were combined with data from tests of small-scale (approximately one-twelfth scale) specimens which were tested as part of a previous investigation. Each specimen was subjected to a reversed lateral load which was applied at the top of each column. Specimens of different scales were compared with regard to their load-rotation responses. Explicit scale factors based on the load-rotation relationship were derived.
