Introduction
The Strut-and-Tie is aunified approachthatconsiders all load effects (
M, N, V, T
)simultaneouslyThe Strut-and-Tie model approach evolves as oneof the most useful design methods forshear criticalstructuresand for otherdisturbed regionsin concrete structuresThe model provides arational approachbyrepresenting a complex structural member with anappropriate simplified truss modelsThere is no single, unique STM for most designsituations encountered. There are, however, sometechniques and rules, which help the designer,develop an appropriate model
 
History and Specifications
The subject was presented bySchlaichet al(1987) and also contained in the texts byCollins and Mitchell (1991) and MacGregor(1992)One form of the STM has been introduced inthe new AASHTOLRFD Specifications (1994),which is its first appearance in a designspecification in the USIt will be included in ACI318-02 Appendix A
