Experimental and analytical investigations of reinforced concrete beam-column joints retrofitted by single haunch

Abstract

Recently, the single haunch with specifications such as less invasive and architectural consistency, and easy to practice have been adopted as one of the considered retrofitting options for deficient reinforced concrete beam-column joints. In this article, by analytical evaluation, the influence parameters such as haunch to beam stiffness ratio, haunch inclination angles, and mounted position were investigated. Analytical equations were also proposed for haunch to beam stiffness ratio in terms of both shear interaction between haunch and beam-column members and reduction of joint shear demand. Moreover, five exterior beam-column joint sub-assemblies were fabricated afterwards four of those retrofitted by various cross-sectional area of single steel haunch. Then, all of these beam-column joints and remaining one (as-built joint) were experimentally subjected to cyclic loading. To validate the analytical results, the experimental responses in four limit states including first diagonal core crack in as-built joint, drift ratio 2%, the first diagonal core crack in all the joints, and ultimate state (peak load) were provided for comparison. Also, by definition of an index as vulnerability index in fraction ratio of available joint shear force to joint shear strength predicted by international codes, the obtained vulnerability index of experimental responses were compared to analytical results.
