The beam - column joint is resisting the forces against both horizontal and vertical directions, which is particularly vulnerable failure during earthquake. For achieving a strong beam-column joint, the incorporation of fibres like steel and uses of high performance concrete material is must resist these lateral forces. So the knowledge of exterior beam-column joint study is essential. This paper presents a review of the experimental research associated with the behavior of beam-column joint under various loadings with the incorporation of steel fibers in High Performance Concrete. The incorporation of fibre in high performance concrete increases the strength, durability, stiffness and one of the possible alternative solutions for reducing congestion of traverse reinforcement. From the general review of previous experimental works, it is concluded that addition of steel fibre in plain concrete increases the energy dissipation capacity of deflections and curvature at peak load. Also, it improves the dimensional stability, integrity of joints and it decreases the stiffness rate of degradation. Finally, scope for a future line of work is recommended.
