Small-scale models of reinforced concrete beam-column joints and anchorage-bond specimens were subjected to large cyclic displacements at two rates. To assess damage, free vibration tests were conducted. The reliability of the modeling techniques was established by comparison of the results for the slower rate with those obtained from the full-scale tests on prototype. The higher rate of loading caused a greater damage than that at the slower rate. This was evidenced by the measurements of the stiffness obtained from the free-vibration test. The relatively greater extent of damage appears to result from the different bond behavior at different rates of loading.
