Expert Tips : Strut-and-Tie Modeling for Pier Caps

What is Strut-and-Tie Analysis? What are "Struts" and "Ties" in Strut-and-Tie Analysis?

Strut-and-tie analysis visualizes the flow of forces through any type of concrete element in the form of internal truss. The tensile members of the internal truss are called "ties" and the compressive members of the internal truss are called "struts" in struct-and-tie analysis. The joints that are needed to join the two types of members together are called "nodes".
