Title: Truss models of RC corbels verified by experimental tests

Author(s): K. Nagrodzka-Godycka

The work presents selected truss models used in design of RC corbels, which served as grounds for the calculating truss model proposals adopted in the European and the Polish standards. The work provides a detailed discussion of individual theoretical models, along with the standard recommendations. It contains a comparison of corbel load capacities obtained from experimental tests - carried out by various researches - with the capacities calculated by means of the models in question.
