Abstract:

The design of disturbed (highly non-linear behavior) regions in concrete structures is illustrated using strut-tie approach. The use of this approach assisted with interactive computer graphics is illustrated with two design examples, a single sided corbel and a pierced shear wall. The strut-tie approach is shown to be instrumental in understanding the function of both concrete and steel reinforcement.
