Fatigue behavior of shear joints between the combined reinforced concrete(RC) and the reinforced steel fiber concrete(SFRC) specimens has been experimentally investigated. Experimental parameters used are the amount of steel fiber and the type of shear joint. Six specimens have been tested under static load, and eight specimens have been subjected to the fatigue load in a range of 50 % and 5 % of the ultimate static load. The purpose of this research is to propose an empirical formula for fatigue shear behavior of the combined RC and SFRC structures on the basis of experimental result. It can be observed from experimental results that addition of steel fibers to concrete specimen increases the static ultimate load by approximately 25 %, enhances the fatigue behavior, and also reduces vertical and lateral displacements at the shear joint for a given load cycle after the occurrence of first crack.
