Abstract
Nine half scale slab-column subassemblies were tested under simulated earthquake loading. Seven of the subassemblies simulated a single floor of a two-bay flat-plate structure. Each subassembly consisted of one interior and two exterior slab-column connections. The remaining two specimens were individual interior and exterior connections. All specimens were subjected to the same predefined displacement routine which consisted of twenty cycles of incremental displacements increasing to a maximum of eight percent drift.
