Strut and tie method demystified by Dr Robert Vollum, Imperial College

Strut and tie modelling (STM) is a useful technique for designing structures like deep beams, corbels and beam-column joints where plane sections do not remain plane. The method can be used either in conjunction or as an alternative to finite element analysis. Strut and tie models have the attraction of visibly satisfying equilibrium through truss action. The detailing requirements for reinforcement are also explicit. The talk will illustrate the principles of STM through a series of worked examples which will show how finite element analysis can be used to refine STM.
