Experimental results are presented from tests conducted on reinforced concrete beam-columnjoints with lap splices under reversed cyclic loading simulating earthquake action. Response curves arecompared for twenty-four specimens designed according to Eurocode 2. The main parameters of theinvestigation are, the geometry of the reinforcing bar extension, the applied axial load (normalized), theavailable cover over lap splice region extended as length required from Eurocode 2, as well as the shapeand the volumetric percentage of the stirrups confining the lap splice zone. The results are evaluated withregards to the load intensity, the energy absorption capacity and the characteristics of the load deflection curve.
