Assessment of Building Code Provisions and Numerical Models for Predicting the Response of Deep Reinforced Concrete Beams with an Opening

Lobsang, Tenzin.


  • Abstract: The Strut-and-Tie Method (STM) was introduced into U.S. design practice with the 2002 Building Code Specifications for the Design of Structural Concrete (ACI318-02). The STM is based on the lower bound theory of plasticity and it idealizes the design of a complex structure by a simple truss. The research will focus on the applicability, efficiency, and validation of the Strut-and-Tie ... read more
