EVALUATION OF JOINT-SHEAR PROVISIONS FOR INTERIOR BEAM-COLUMN-SLAB CONNECTIONS USING HIGH-STRENGTH MATERIALS

Current provisions for design of beam-column-slab connections are based primarily on results of tests of connections constructed with concrete strengths not exceeding 6000 psi and reinforcement with nominal yield strengths of 60 ksi or less. Results of tests conducted on 4 interior beam-column-slab connections constructed with combinations of normal and high-strength concrete and reinforcement are presented, and existing joint-shear provisions are evaluated for use in design of connections constructed with high-strength materials.
