Strut-and-Tie Model Analysis / Design of Structural Concrete


AStrutTie is a strut-tie model analysis/design software for concrete members with disturbed stress region(s). It enables users to design corbel (bracket), abutment/pier footing, bridge pier coping (pier cap), frame corner, anchorage zone, deep beam, etc. 
The software supports U.S (ACI 318, AASHTO LRFD) and Europe (EuroCode 2) codes and specifications. A concrete member can be classified into B-region(s) and D-region(s). D-regions are parts of structure in which the strain distribution is highly nonlinear. Most design practices for D-regions are mostly based on empirical approaches. 
The strut-tie model approach promotes a better under- standing of load transfer mechanisms and structural behavior and it improves the designers' ability to handle unusual circumstances including D-regions.
