Strut-and-Tie Modeling for Structural Concrete
This course presents the concepts and application of strut-and-tie modeling (STM) for structural concrete elements. Students will identify regions within structures where STM can be used for design, apply the methodology to locate and detail reinforcement, and check the capacity of their model. Applications of the method will be illustrated for deep beams, corbels, post-tensioned anchorage zones, torsion resistance, and bridge components. Various strut-and-tie models will be evaluated based on efficiency, economy, and performance.
Recommended for CEE MS Programs: Structural Engineering and Geomechanics (SEG)
