چکیده مقاله:
Past earthquakes have demonstrated that poorly detailed beam-column joints in reinforced concrete building can caused to serious damage of building. A retrofit technique called “joint enlargement using prestressed steel angles” was experimentally investigated by authors and found to be an effective and practical technique for the seismic retrofit of non-seismically detailed reinforced concrete beam-column joints. In this method, the beam-column joint is enlarged by locating stiffened steel angles at the re-entrants corners of the beam-column joint, both above and below the beam, with the steel angles mounted and held in place using high tensile strength bars. The main objective of designing the proposed retrofit method is to avoid joint shear failure and to encourage beam flexural hinging. The size of the joint enlargement should be designed such that to increase the joint shear capacity through increasing effective joint area and to improve the anchorage bond of the beam longitudinal bar within the joint panel zone through increasing apparent column depth. In this research paper the detailed analysis of retrofitted RC beam-column joints by joint enlargement using prestressed steel angles was discussed with considering the load transfer mechanism in the beam-column joint sub-assemblages. The detailed analysis including: evaluation of distribution of pre-stressing force in the joint region, distribution of shear stress between joint panel and joint enlargement and effect of joint enlargement on the beam, column and joint internal forces.
