Beam-Column joints are critical regions in reinforced concrete crete or RCC structures which are most vulnerable or sensitive to seismic forces. Hence strengthening and rehabilitant beam-column joint is imperative to save the structure and its inhabitants in case of earthquake forces. Numerous and large scale retrofitting ting works using fibre reinforced polymer (FRP) composites are being undertaken worldwide. This experimental study aims to investigate the effectiveness of strengthening beam-column joints using synthetic fibres. In this study, Aramid fiber (synthetic fibres) was used for strengthening and rehabilitant of beam-column joints. Many specimens were prepared and tested under monotonic loading with the help of universal testing machine. At the end, test results of control and rehabilitated samples were compared together. The experimental conclusions in all tested specimens will embolden future investigations in same direction for long term performance to enhancing this AFRP in structural applications. © IAEME Publication.
