Experimental Investigations on Seismic Retrofitting of Reinforced Concrete Beam-Column Joints (2010)
Beam-column joints are recognized as the critical and vulnerable zone of a Reinforced Concrete (RC) moment resisting structure subjected to seismic loads. During an earthquake, the global response of the structure is mainly governed by the behaviour of the joints. If the joints behave in a ductile manner, the global behaviour generally will be ductile, whereas if the joints behave in a brittle fashion then the structure will display a brittle behaviour. The joints of old and non-seismically detailed structures are more vulnerable and behave poorly under the earthquakes compared to the joints of new and seismically detailed structures. Therefore, more often than not, the joints of such old structures require retrofitting in order to deliver better performance during earthquakes. Various researchers have proposed different methods to retrofit the beam-column joints of existing RC structures. This paper reports a few experimental investigations carried out for seismic retrofitting of RC beam-column joints using different techniques. The concepts behind each of them and their practical usefulness have been brought out.

Displacement-based seismic retrofit design for non-ductile RC frame structures using local retrofit interventions at beam-column joints Kam, W.Y.; Pampanin, Stefano (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2011)In the past design codes, infill panels/walls within frame buildings have been considered as non-structural elements and thus have been typically neglected in the design process. However, the observations made after major ...
Application of Post-Installed Anchors for Seismic Retrofit of RC Beam-Column Joints: Design Method Genesio, G.; Eligehausen, R.; Pampanin, Stefano (University of Canterbury. Civil and Natural Resources Engineering, 2011)Many reinforced concrete (RC) structures, built in seismic-prone countries before the introduction of the modern seismic oriented codes and usually designed for gravity loads only, necessitate an upgrade in terms of strength ...
