Abstract

The seismic performance of a corner beam-column joint in reinforced concrete frames was studied by testing two three-dimensional corner beam-column subassemblage specimens without slabs under constant column axial load and bi-directional lateral cyclic load reversals. The column-to-beam flexural strength ratio was varied from 1.4 to 2.3 by changing the magnitude of column axial load. Although a sufficient margin to prevent shear failure was provided to a corner beam-column joint in the test, the subassemblage specimens failed in joint hinging after beam and column longitudinal bars and joint hoops yielded. The ultimate joint hinging capacity of a corner joint under bi-directional lateral loading was enhanced by an increase in column compressive axial load, and can be estimated based on the new mechanism proposed by Kusuhara and Shiohara.
