SCC, Steel Fibre, Cyclic Loading, Beam-Column Joint


The beam-column joint is one of the most critical section in the design and construction of the structure. In these areas, a high percentage of transverse hoops in the core of the joint are needed in order to meet the requirement of strength, stiffness and ductility factor under cyclic inelastic flexure loading. The beam column joint subjected to cyclic loading require great care in detailing. Diagonal tension cracking is one of the main causes of failure of joint. The satisfactory performance of a beam column joint depends strongly on the lateral confinement of joint. The present study deals with the non-conventional reinforcement detailing of the beam column joint that provides inclined bars on the two faces of the joint core. The performance of beam column joint has been a research topic for many years. The anchorage length requirements for beam and column bars, the provision of transverse reinforcement, the design and detailing of the joint are the main issues. Several researches have reported their test results using SFRC in framed beam column joints. All these tests have shown the effectiveness of using steel fibers to increase the joint strength, ductility and the energy absorption capacity. Provision of high percentage of hoops leads to congestion of steel leading to construction difficulties. These difficulties can be removed by using self-compacting concrete (SCC).
