To study the effect of shear reinforcement and installation of concealed beam on seismic behavior of slab-column connections, five slab-column connections were tested under low-cycle reversed load. The control specimen had no shear reinforcement, while the other four specimens were equipped with spiral stirrups, four-leg stirrups, eight-leg stirrups and studs, respectively. Crack development characteristics, failure modes, hysteretic behaviour, unbalanced moment capacity and ductility of each specimen were analyzed. The results show that compared with the specimen without shear reinforcement, unbalanced moment capacity and ductility of specimens with shear reinforcement are increased by 13%~48% and 68%~198%, respectively. The general seismic performance of specimens is significantly improved by properly designing the concealed beam. The specimen with four-leg stirrups can meet the requirement of seismic performance in Chinese code and is more economical than the that with eight-leg stirrups. By summarizing and analyzing existing test data, it is found that for slab-column connections with shear reinforcement, the calculated results with Chinese code are in good agreement with test results, but the dispersion of calculated results is relatively high.
