Abstract:
Inadequate design of indirect supports resulted in a lot of structural damage and near failure of structural concrete beams. Most codes, including ACI 318, do not properly cover this case. However, strut-and-tie models almost automatically lead to correctly reinforcing these critical discontinuity regions. This example combines indirect supports as well as indirectly applied loads and demonstrates the application of strut-and-tie models following Appendix A of ACI 318-2002.
