Recent earthquake events worldwide have shown the poor performance of limited-ductile reinforced concrete frame buildings, whilst exterior beam-column joint is usually the weakest link in this kind of buildings. This research aims to offer a less-invasive and more architecturally favourable retrofitting technique to enhance the seismic behaviour of the beam-column joint and accordingly whole structure.
