The increased number of terrorist attacks mainly in the last couple of years has shown that the impact of blast loads on buildings is a serious matter that we should consider during the building design process. The research has shown that the two joints (i.e. corner joint and exterior joint) are tested for blast loading of 6kgTNT charge effect with varying scaled distances (0.5m, 0.75m, 1m). Both joints are tested for both conditions that are in presence of steel fibers and in absence of steel fibers. Every steel designer should design Beam-Column joint for blast resistant as the beam-column joint become weak during blast. While these terrorist attacks are rare events, dynamic loads, i.e. blast loads, always need to be measured carefully much like earthquake loads and wind loads. The investigation of behavior of Beam-Column joint with and without Steel Fiber Reinforced Concrete under blast loading is presented in this paper using finite element method. Individual behavior of Beam-Column joint under blast loading before and after adding Steel Fibers is studied in this paper.
