Abstract: This paper introduces a type of rigid beam to column connection and discusses its seismic behavior derived from finite element analysis using Opensees software. The study shows that Opensees can very well simulate the behavior of exterior RCS connection under static reversed cyclic loading. Moreover, other static behaviors of external RCS connection, such as distribution of the minimum stress stress of the joint panel zone, concrete minimum principal stress -equivalent uniaxial strain relations are investigated to obtain more information and important data that can not be obtained in experimental studies
