Detailed Webinar Instructions


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.
