The use of the epoxy pressure injection technique to rehabilitate reinforced concrete beam-column joints damaged by strong earthquakes is investigated experimentally and analytically. Two one-half-scale exterior beam-column joint specimens were exposed to reverse cyclic loading similar to thatgenerated from strong earthquake ground motion, resulting in damage. Both specimens were typical ofnew structures and incorporated full seismic details in current building codes. Thus the first specimen wasdesigned according to Eurocode 2 and Eurocode 8 and the second specimen was designed according toACI-318 (195) and ACI-ASCE Committee 352 (1985). The specimens were then repaired with an epoxypressure injection technique. The repaired specimens were subjected to the same displacement history asthat imposed on the original specimens. The results indicate that the epoxy pressure injection techniquewas effective in restoring the strength, stiffness and energy disipation capacity of specimens representinga modern design.
