Design Charts for Corbels

The design of corbels using the strut-and-tie model entails a trial-and-error procedure in the determination of tension reinforcement. This is a laborious method and might also lead to unacceptable depth of the compression block or the vertical shear capacity being exceeded. This means that the whole procedure needs to be repeated until all design criteria are satisfied. F.A.N. Al-Shawi
