Eccentric Beam-Column Connections

This article summarizes all research available on the subject of eccentric reinforced concrete beam-column connections. Design recommendations compatible with the ACI recommendations for design of beam-column connections in monolithic reinforced concrete structures (ACI 352R-02) also are proposed. Based on findings from the research review, it is recommended that an effective joint width equal to the average of the beam and column widths can be used to estimate the joint shear strength of eccentric reinforced concrete beam-column connections for design. This recommendation should be considered in conjunction with other design provisions of ACI 352R-02.
