Abstract

Re-evaluation of seismic capacity of interior beam-column joints P.O. Bakir, H.M. Boduroglu Civil Engineering Department, Istanbul Technical University, Turkey Abstract In spite of the fact that a wide variety of tests on joints of both interior and exterior types have been carried out since the 1960 s, there is no unique design philosophy common to different codes in the world. This is possibly due to the different interpretations of tests as well as test specimens with different demands. This study gives the preliminary findings of the investigations on the factors that effect the performance of interior joints under seismic loads. The authors inspected an experimental database by bringing different tests from different countries together. The database consisted of interior joints which are under uniaxial and biaxial seismic loading and specimens subject to vertical and horizontal acceleration. The experimental database includes tests from different countries such as New Zeala
