Abstract

The European research project BANDIT investigated the effectiveness of a novel Post-Tensioned Metal Strapping (PTMS) strengthening technique at improving the seismic performance of deficient RC buildings using shake table tests. A full-scale two-story structure was designed with inadequate reinforcement detailing of columns and beam-column joints so as to simulate typical deficient buildings in Mediterranean and developing countries. Initial shaking table tests were carried out until significant damage was observed in the beam-column joints of the bare frame. Subsequently, the damaged building was repaired and strengthened using PTMS and additional tests were performed. The results of this study show that the adopted strengthening strategy improved significantly the seismic performance of the substandard RC building under strong earthquake excitations.
