The objective of the current study is to investigate and evaluate the flexural behavior of the continuity connection of precast prestressed concrete beams in negative bending when the tendons are located at the compression side. The experimental program included four T-shaped composite cantilever beams which were loaded up to failure. The main variable of the tests was the amount of prestress force of the connected precast beams. The reinforcement ratio of continuity connection was high. The ultimate flexural capacities and moment-curvature relations were calculated theoretically. A comparison was then carried out between both the experimental and theoretical results. These experiments revealed that prestress force did not influence the ultimate hogging moment capacity of the continuity connection, but it had an effect on its soffit's compression cracking and spalling of the concrete cover before failure. This study also indicated that confinement of the concrete had a massive influence on the connection's behavior, and it increased both its negative moment capacity and ductility.
