Abstract

The common regions of intersecti

called joints. W
henever the area of these regions is limited, as in
case of linear elements
(be
ams and columns) framing into each
other, it is essential to verify their
maximum shear stress
, as well
as the
minimum
shear stress and deformations (d
isplacements)
of
beam column joint
region. The various research studies
focused on corner and exterior be
am column joints and their
behavior, support conditions of beam

column joints i. e .both
ends hinged and fixed
, stiffness variation of the joint
.
In this
study various parameters are studied for monotonically loaded
exterior and corner reinforced concrete
beam column joint.
The
corner as well as exterior beam

column joint is analyzed with
varying stiffness of beam

column joint.
The
behavior of exterior

INTRODUCTION
Earthquakes are one of the m
ost feared natural
phenomena that are relatively unexpected and whose
impact is sudden due to the almost instantaneous
destruction that a major earthquake can produce.
Severity
of ground shaking at a given location during an earthquake
can be minor, modera
te and strong which relatively
speaking occur frequently, occasionally an rarely
respectively. Design and construction of a building to resist
the rare earthquake shaking that may come only once in
500 years or even once in 2000 years at a chosen project
s
ite even though life of the building itself may be only 50 to
100 years is too robust and also too expensive. Hence, the
main intention is to make building earthquake

resistant that
resist the effect of ground shaking although it may get
damaged severely b
ut would not collapse during even the
strong earthquake. Thus, the safety of people and contents
is assured in earthquake

resistant buildings. This is a major
objective of seismic design codes throughout the world.
The
performance of structures in earthqua
kes indicates that
most structures, system and components, if properly
designed and detailed, have a significant capacity to absorb
energy when deformed beyond their elastic limits.
Experience with the behavior of reinforced concrete beam

column joints in
actual earthquakes is limited. To fully
realize the benefits of ductile behavior of reinforced
concrete frame structures, instabilities due to large
deflections and brittle failure of structural elements must be
prevented under the most severe expected ear
thquake
ground motions.

LITERATURE REVIEW
As it is explained above the strength of beam

column
joint plays a very important role in the strength of the
structure, here the literature survey is carried out to have the
information about the Monotonic Lo
ading applied to the
beam

column joint. The literature review covers research
papers based on beam

column joints.

This paper investigates the inﬂuence of the
column axial
load on the joint shear strength through
numerical simulations. The numerical study is performed
through the software ABAQUS, based on Finite Element
Method. A comparison of the numerical and experimental
results is presented in order to validate the simul
ation. The
results showed that the column axial load made the joint
more stiff but also introduced stresses in the beam
longitudinal reinforcement. A more uniform stress
distribution in the joint region is obtained when the stirrup
ratio is increased. Furt
hermore, some tension from the top
beam longitudinal reinforcement is absorbed by the stirrups
located at the upper part of the joint. This paper gives the
affect of stirrup ratio to exterior beam

column joints where
the beam is loaded monotonically.

here authors have carried out
Monotonic tests on beam

column joints which showed the
failure of the connection can either be in the beam(bending
failure) or inside the joint(shear and bond failures).The
behavior
o
f exterior beam

column joints is different from
that of interior connections. The model has been calibrated
using a database with more than 200 static load tests. The
reported test results as well as test results from the literature
were used to study the
behavior
of exterior and interior
beam

column connections. The shear strength of an exterior
beam

column connection decreases with increasing joint
slenderness.

affect the shear demand and shear strength of the joint are
explained. The design of shear reinforcement within the
joint and its detailing aspects are also discuss
ed.

FRAMED JOINTS
Beam column joints can be critical regions in reinforced
concrete frames designed for inelastic response to severe
seismic attack. As a consequence of seismic moments in
columns of opposite signs immediately above and below
the joi
nt, the joint region is subjected to horizontal and
vertical shear forces whose magnitude is typically many
times higher than in the adjacent beams and columns. If not
designed for, joint shear failure can result.

LOADING SYSTEMS
The s
tructures are being imposed by many loads e.g.
dead load, live load, imposed(wind) load, snow load,
earthquake load etc. The structures have to be designed in
such a way that they can bear these loads to overcome the
collapse or failure of the structures.
Today the earthquake
resistant structures are being designed more widely. To
understand the behavior of the structures in the earthquake,
the researchers are applying cyclic loading to the building
in the laboratory.
Types of Loading systems
:

The
behavio
r
of building is studied with different types of
loads
.
1)
Static
loading:

Static means slow loading in structural
testing.
Test of components
:

Beams(bending),column
(axial),beams and columns
Purpose of testing
:

Determine strength limits
Determine the f
lexibility/rigidity of structures
2)
Quasi

static loading
:

Very slowly applied loading in
one direction (monotonic)
3)
Quasi

static reversed cyclic loading
:

Very slowly
applied loading in both direction (cyclic)
4) Dynamic (random) loading
:

Shake at the
base or any
other elevation of the structure
s
haking similar to that
during earthquakes.
Monotonic Loading
The Monotonic loading can be defined as very slowly
applied loading in one direction it may be in upward or
downward direction. In Monotonic loading
for the failure of
the member the load is maximum
. Therefore, the structures
must be designed for monotonic loading. If the structures
are designed as per monotonic loading, the structures are
safe in other loading systems.

FINITE ELEMENT ANALYSIS
The Finite Element Analysis is a numerical technique in
which all complexities of the problems varying shape,
boundary conditions and loads are maintained as they are
but the solutions obtained are approximat
e. Solutions can
be obtained for all problems by Finite Element
Analysis
.
Various steps involved in FEM are as follows.
1. Selection of field variables and the elements.
2. Discretization of structure.
3. Finding the element properties
4. Assembling element
stiffness matrix
5. Solution of nodal unknown

Ansys software has been used for conducting the finite
element analysis of the Concrete Beam Column Joint.

Development of a model for the behavior of concrete
is a challenging task. Concrete is a quasi

bri
ttle material
and has different behavior in compression and tension. The
tensile strength of concrete is typically 8

15% of the
compressive strength (Shah, et al. 1995).

shows a typical stress

strain curve for normal weight
concrete (Bangash
1989).

Uniaxial Compressive
and

Strain
Curve For concrete (
Bangash
1989)
In compression, the stress

strain curve for concrete is
linearly elastic up to about 30 percent of the maximum
compressive strength. Above this point,
the stress increases
gradually up to the maximum compressive strength. After it
re
aches the maximum compressive strength σ
cu
, the curve
descends into a softening region, and eventually crushing
failure occurs at an ultimate strain ε
cu
. In tension, the stress

strain curve for concrete is approximately linearly elastic up
to the maximum
tensile strength. After this point, the
concrete cracks and the strength decreases gradually to zero
(Bangash 1989).

s:

In this project the structure
has been modeled using Steel Reinforced Conc
rete. The
material properties mentioned below act equivalent for a
Smeared Reinforcement concrete model using solid 65
elements
in Ansys. Many research papers have been
published using similar kind of model. Broujerdian et. al
(2010) have worked using a si
milar approach. The used of
these features
enables obtaining good results with
fewer
solvers
and modeling time.

by defining geometrical joints and lines. Material definition
is carried out prior to assigning of macro elements. The

Reinforcing bar anchorage
:

To study the effect of
reinforcing bars on joint
behavior
, smeared bars were
specified for all of the reinforcement within the model. The
anchorage of the beam tension bar is one of the main
contributors to joint
behavior
. The anchorage
behavior
is
significantly affected by the material model of the element
in which the bar is embedded, and more importantly, any
additional reinforcing bars within the element.
Boundary
conditions
:

As shown in
Fig.

Modeling of t
he boundary
conditions is often the most critical aspect in achieving
sensible, reliable data from a finite element model. In the
test specimens, the critical zones (around the joint) were far
from the applied boundary constraints (edge of the
model).Accur
ate boundary constraints however, still
required.
The column connections were modeled as hinged
supports attached to a single node to allow full rotation.
Column end caps, used to support and restrain the test
specimens in the loading frame, were included
in the model
to allow the effective length of the column to be modeled
correctly. The material for the end caps had a higher
ultimate capacity, but had a similar stiffness to the concrete
to reduce restraint in the adjacent elements.

CONCLUSION
1)
As
load
increases displacement, minimum stress and
maximum stress also increases.
2)
For fixed support condition for corner and exterior joint
the
displacement,
minimum stress and maximum stress
values
are minimum
as compare to hin
ge
support condition.
3)
The behavior of corner beam column joint is different
than that of the exterior beam column joint.
4)
For stiffness variation of corner joint for Sj=0.18 t
he
displacement is minimum as compare to Sj=1.29, Sj=2.05,
Sj=0.75
.
5)
For s
tiffness variation of corner joint for Sj=0.18 the
minimum stress is more as compare to Sj=1.29 and
Sj=2.05,
for Sj=0.75 the minimum stress is maximum as
compare to Sj=
0.18.
6)
For stiffness variation of corner joint for Sj=0.18 the
maximum stress is more
as compare to
Sj=1.29
and
Sj=2.05
, for
Sj=0.75
the maximum stress is maximum as
compare to
Sj=0.18.
7)
For stiffness variation of
Exterior joint for
Sj=1.29
the
displacement is minimum as compare to
Sj=2.05
,
for
Sj=0.75
and for
Sj=0.18
the displacement is
maximum as
compare to
Sj=1.29
.
8)
For stiffness variation of
Exterior joint for
Sj=1.29
the
minimum stress is more as compare to
Sj=2.05
and
Sj=0.75
, for
Sj=0.18
the minimum stress is more as
compare to
Sj=1.29
.
9)
For stiffness variation of
Exterior j
oint for
Sj=1.29
the
maximum stress is less as compare to
Sj=2.05
.for
remaining stiffness
Sj=0.75
and
Sj=0.18
the maximum
stress is less.
(Minimum)
10)
As stiffness of the structure changes the displacement,
minimum stress and maximum stress changes No
n

linearly.
