Abstract: The research has aimed behaviour of precast interior joint. The research consists of analyze crack patterns, hysteresis loop characteristics, ductility and strength of precast joint. The speciment consists of 2 precast interior joints using a notch models known as BTK-30 and 40 and 1 monolith interior joint known as BN. The beams were connected in area where plastic hinges. The dimension of speciments were 200×300×1.500 mm and column 300×300×1.500 mm. The length of notch were 150 mm which connected by welding system and grouting system. The load was a lateral loading as cyclic loading. The method of analysis using European Convention for Constructional Steelwork (ECCS) 1986 standard. The results are all cracks were flexural cracks where in the plastic hinge area. The hysteresis loop characteristics shows a curves identical to joint monolith. The comparison of two precast joint that BTK-40 is the best value on cracking, strength and ductility.
