Analysis of Beam Column Joint Subjected to Seismic Lateral Loading

0
The beam-column joints are among the weakest members of reinforced concrete frames in terms of seismic resistance. Failure of beam column joints during earthquake is governed by bond and shear failure mechanism which are brittle in nature[8].This study presents critical review of recommendations of well established codes regarding design and detailing aspects of beam column joints This paper presents a review of the postulated theories associated with the behavior of joints under ACI 318M-02 and IS 13920: 1993 Code. Understanding the joint behavior is essential in exercising proper judgments in the design of joints. The paper discusses about the seismic actions on various types of joints and highlights the critical parameters that affect joint performance with special reference to bond and shear transfer.
