Results of experimental investigation on cyclic behavior of beam-column joints made up of hybrid steel trussed concrete beams connected to reinforced concrete columns are presented. Specimens are representative of joints in framed structures subjected to seismic actions designed according to current Italian technical standard codes. The aim of the experimental testing was to verify strength capacity and ductility of the connection, focusing both the global behavior and the force transmission mechanisms between steel truss and concrete in the region close to the beam-column joint.
