The behaviour of interior beam-column joints under seismic actions is examined in detail. The existence of two shear resisting mechanisms, one involving joint shear reinforcement and the other a linear concrete strut, is postulated and the effects of reversed cyclic loading on these mechanisms, in both the elastic and inelastic range of response, are discussed. Simple analytical models of behavior are presented. The detrimental effects of yield penetration into a joint upon longitudinal bar anchorage are discussed, and methods to overcome these effects are proposed. /Author/
