Strut and Tie Models: Analysis, Design and Case Studiespresents a systematic and consistent approach to the application of the STM to almost all types of members using the arbitrary distinction between a D and a B region. Strut and tie modeling provides design engineers with a flexible and intuitive option for designing structures or portions that are heavily influenced by shear forces. The book also demonstrates how strut and tie modeling and finite element methods are not mutually exclusive, but rather are complementary and supportive.

The book s four part treatment starts with an overview of structural analysis and strut and tie models (STM). This is quickly followed by relevant topics, such as loads and load paths through members, case studies and formalization of strut and tie models. Applications of STM are then explained in detail along with how to extract STM through FEM, solved examples and mobile apps.

  • Includes moment curvature analysis, interaction diagrams and reinforcement design and stress analysis for structural cross sections
  • Includes modeling tools and computational methods for cross-sections for stress distribution and stress calculations
  • Features many illustrations, schematics, diagrams and line drawings
  • Includes author-developed computer-based apps to be used in conjunction with the practical applications presented in the book
  • Covers both the Eurocodes and American Concrete Institute codes, which are two major, widely-used building design code documents in the world according to
