The horizontal press performance of column is deteriorated because of special-shaped section. Moreover, because the antiseismic performance of columns is worse, it is only used in regions where seismic intensity is lower. So the main problem is to enhance the ductility. This test study on mechanical performance has been carried out through fourteen SRCTSSC and RCTSSC. The study focuses on the impact of test axial pressure ratio(nt), hooped reinforcement ratio(ρv), shear span ratio(λ) and steel ratio(ρss) to the shear strength and the antiseismic performance of SRCTSSC. It can be concluded that the shear strength of SRCTSSC is increasing with the increasing of nt and ρss , but the degree of increasing is small when nt is a certainty value, and that the shear strength of SRCTSSC is decreasing with increasing of λ; The shear resistance formula of T-shaped column is derived through tests, the calculated results are in correspondence with those of the tests. It also can be concluded that the hysteretic loops of the SRCTSSC are full and the hysteretic behaviors are improved and that the displacement ductility is increasing with increasing of ρv and ρss , but decreasing with the increasing of nt and the degree of variety in high axial pressure ratio is larger than in low axial pressure ratio. If steel bars are added, the shear strength and displacement ductility of SRCTSSC is increased in a large degree, and the capacity of energy dissipation is also enhanced. This test, for applying the special-shape column to higher intensity region, has the certain instructive significance.
