The connections between precast concrete components play an important role in determining the successful of precast concrete framed structures. In particular, the connection between beam-to-column that will affect the load distribution, strength, stability and constructability of the global structure. The understanding on the behaviour of the connection is important and can only be assessed by conducting experimental tests. The main objective of this research is to investigate the moment of resistance and the behaviour of simple beam-to-column connections in precast concrete frames. The experimental test comprised a total of four specimens, which were limited to simple beam-to-column connections in precast concrete frames. The behaviour of loaddisplacement relationships, moment-rotation relationships and types of failure in connections are also investigated. Moreover, the development of safe, economical, simple and ductile precast beam-to-column connections conforming to building code requirements could be proposed.
