Abstract

Beam-column joints (BCJs) are critical structural elements in buildings, influencing overall structural performance and safety. This review paper presents a comprehensive analysis of findings of research showing concern about various aspects of BCJs, focusing on eccentricity effect, numerical investigation, joint behavior, shear strength, retrofitting strategies, and recent advances. Through experimental studies, numerical simulations, and analytical approaches, various studies have made significant progress in understanding BCJ response to various loading circumstances including cyclic, monotonic, and axial loading. Studies addressing eccentricity effect have elucidated the influence of displacement asymmetry on joint response, offering valuable insights for design and performance evaluation of structures. Numerical simulations have presented detailed understandings of BCJ behavior, aiding in the advancement of accurate modeling techniques and design methodologies. Research on joint behavior has explored the complex interaction mechanisms within BCJs, enhancing comprehension of failure modes and performance under various loading scenarios. Furthermore, investigations into shear strength have contributed to refining design provisions and retrofitting strategies aimed at enhancing BCJ resilience and ductility. Recent advancements have leveraged innovative experimental techniques and computational methods to delve deeper into BCJ mechanics and performance characteristics. This review consolidates existing knowledge and identifies emerging trends, providing a significant resource for engineers, and practitioners engaged in the design, assessment, and retrofitting of reinforced concrete structures, particularly focusing on beam-column joints.

Keywords: Beam-column joints, eccentricity effect, numerical investigation, joint behavior, shear strength, retrofitting strategies
