This webinar aims to explain strut and tie modelling (STM), which has become available for use under Eurocode 2. STM can be applied to many elements of a concrete structure but is usually adopted to design non-standard elements or parts of elements of concrete structures such as deep beams, corbels, beams with holes, connections, etc.
As there is little actual guidance in Eurocode 2, this webinar will concentrate the theory and practice of applying STM. The background will include TCC’s publication on the subject.
