Abstract

Experimental and analytical studies were carried out in order to clarify the stress- transfer mechanism of SRC interior beam-column joints. The variables examined were beam-column depth ratio, concrete strength, and the shapes of steel and concrete in a horizontal cross-section. All of the SRC specimens failed in joint shear. The experimental results showed that the shear strength of a beam-column joint depends on the beam-column depth ratio and the shape of the joint cross section. Therefore, the ultimate shear strengths of the SRC beam-column joints calculated by using the AIJ-SRC standard equation did not agree with the experimental values. The analytical results showed that the shear strength of a shaped st
