AbstractThe beam-column joints in a reinforced concrete frame are vulnerable to damage caused by seismic events. The conventional detailing using transverse hoops usually results in serious joint congestion, which creates contruction problems. This paper introduces a new detail especially developed for low to medium seismicity, which involves the use of additional diagonal bars in the joint. Six half-scale interior beam-column assemblies with different joint details, namely 'empty', nominal transverse reinforcement and diagonal bars, tested under reversed cyclic loading are reported. The empty joint is not suitable even under moderate seismicity. The test results show that the joints containing the newly proposed detail, with or without axial compressive load present in the column, exhibit better behaviour at the lower range of ductility factors in terms of higher load-carrying capacity, greater stiffness and less strength degradation. Therefore, the newly proposed joint detail is suitable for beam-column joints of reinforced concrete buildings located in regions of low to medium seismic risk.
