Name of Book :– fib. Bulletin 61 Design examples for strut-and-tie models
Page Length :- 232
fib Bulletin 61 is a continuation of the fib Bulletin 16 (2002), and again the main objective is to demonstrate the application of the FIP Recommendations “Practical Design of Structural Concrete”, and especially to illustrate the use of strut-and-tie models to design discontinuity regions (D-regions) in concrete structures.
Most of the 14 examples are existing structures built in the last years. Although some of the presented structures can be considered as quite important or some also as complex, the chosen examples are not intended to be exceptional. The main aim is to treat particular design aspects, by selecting D-regions of the presented structures that are designed and detailed following the proposed design principles and specifications for the use of strut-and-tie models.
Additionally 2 papers are presented in the end. Paper 15 deals with the role of concrete tension fields in modeling with strut-and-tie models. Paper 16 aims at summarizing the experiences the Working Group gained in applying strut-and-tie models for the examples presented in this Bulletin.
