This is a recorded webinar from October 2, 2018.
This webinar will present the background information and basic design rules for the strut-and-tie method prescribed in the ACI 318-14 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete. Guidance will be given for the development of a strut-and-tie model (truss model) to be used for analysis and design of either D-regions (disturbed regions) within a member or the entire member. Design rules and strength limits will be given for the elements of a strut-and-tie model, namely the struts, ties and nodes. An example is included to show the steps required to design a member using the strut-and-tie method.
Table of Contents
1. Summarize the background for the development of the strut-and-tie method.
2. Explain design rules and geometric restraints for development of strut-and-tie models.
3. Describe the Code-defined nominal strengths of struts, ties and nodes.
4. Review how to finalize and check the design of either a whole member or a critical region within a member.
