—A great deal of research is being carried out on dry and prefabricated construction methods with a precast composite structural system. This study investigates the joint behavior and calculates structural capacity of a Smart frame, which is a steel-reinforced concrete structural system developed by researchers in a structural experiment. The structural experiment discovered that flexural moment capacity improved by 46.8% in Smart columns compared to reinforced concrete columns. This study is expected to contribute to structural design.
