The paper designed three joints namely beam-column joint of reinforced concrete frame without slab and two beam-column joints of reinforced concrete frame with slab, using different loading methods (one direction and two directions) to experiment. The paper studied failure behavior, load-carrying capacity, and slab participation in flexural behavior of beam under different loading modes. Experiment shows that for the joints with slab, flexural capacity at end of the beam under two direction loads than one direction loads lows by about 10%; under one direction load, effective flange width of slab should be taken 8 times thickness, under two direction loads, effective flange width of slab should be taken 10 times thickness.
