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.
