Tests are performed on two commercially available column-to-base connection arrangements. The structural characteristics of both systems are presented in the form of moment-rotation curves. A method by which these connections can be used in a practical design problem is proposed. One type of moment-resistant beam-to-column connection for precast concrete is developed and tested in the laboratory. The structural characteristics of three different sizes of prototypes using the same arrangement are presented in the form of moment-rotation curves. The applicability to design of these connections is outlined through a brief theoretical study.
