Beam-column joints are considered as the critical zones of failure. In practical condition, extending the beam reinforcement into the column below the soffit and providing confining reinforcement at ends of beam and at the joint will lead to congestion of reinforcement. Inorder to avoid this congestion we should reduce the development length of the bars and increase the spacing of confinement bars such that no failure occurs. This project aims to check the feasibility of using steel plates for anchorages and also to investigate upon the feasibility of using steel fibres at the confining region to increase the capacity of the concrete thereby increasing the spacing of confining reinforcement without compromising the ductile capacity.
