A comparison of design using strut-and-tie modeling and deep beam method for transfer girders in building structures

  title={A comparison of design using strut-and-tie modeling and deep beam method for transfer girders in building structures},
  author={Eric R. Skibbe},
Strut-and-Tie models are useful in designing reinforced concrete structures with discontinuity regions where linear stress distribution is not valid. Deep beams are typically short girders with a large point load or multiple point loads. These point loads, in conjunction with the depth and length of the members, contribute to a member with primarily discontinuity regions. ACI 318-08 Building Code Requirements for Structural Concrete provides a method for designing deep beams using either Strut…

Strength and Behavior of Deep Beams in Shear
Relatively deep rectangular concrete beams were tested to failure under bending and shear loading. The beams had longitudinal tension and compression reinforcement. Concrete strength, length-depth
