One of the most reasonable ways to connect thin ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) facades to building structures is bolted joints. To design the joints for the facades economically and safely, a clear investigation of the structural behavior is needed. In this study, the joint strength, failure modes and strain concentration phenomena of the bolted UHPC panels are investigated by direct tensile test. The main experimental variables are the geometric parameters, which are the width of the specimen, its thickness, and the distance from the center of the hole to the edge. Experimental results show that ductility of the joint depends on the failure mode. In addition, it is shown that the increase in the material cost of the panel, such as size and thickness, does not necessarily lead to an increase in the joint strength.
