Analytical and Experimental Study on Flexural Behavior of Beam-column Joint with Addition of Polypropylene Fibers
Key scope of this research is evaluation of actions of beam to column joints under the impact load acting on it. The beam-column joints, a common area between frame beams and columns. It is the most critical zone to ensure the global response of such momentary resistance structures. Several approaches have been attempted over the years by many civil engineers and practitioners to improve the deficiently thorough joint in between beam and column. The highest bending moment and shear forces in the framed structures are at the junction area. As a result, that joint between beam and column is one of a collapse zone. Joint in outer is more important among the beam-column joints. The effect may be caused by a weight falling on the design object or possibly falling off the design object and hitting the hard surface. In this work, an emphasis has been made to understand the joint vulnerability against impact loads and its behavior is analyzed using the ANSYS software. From this experimental program observed that, impact resistance in RCC beam to column joints can be improved by improving stiffness by added polypropylene fibers and energy absorption can also be improved.
