Abstract-In reinforced concrete structure beam, the beam column joints are more crucial zones which are most susceptible to failure during earthquake excitation. It is very important to design the joint to dissipate the large amount of energy to the neighbouring elements without loss of strength and ductility. Several retrofitting methods are employed to strengthen the beam column joint. The effective method one among is Fibre Reinforced Polymer (FRP) composites. In this paper, the deflection of beam column joint wrapped with aramid fibre has been calculated and it is compared with Ansys software solution. From the results, the deflection of the joint is decreased when aramid fibre is used.
