In this course, students learn the concepts and application of strut and tie modeling and how it is used for the design of deep beams, for torsion resistance, beam-column joints, bridge and building components, and post-tensioned anchor zones. There is a group course project integrating computer simulation and physical experimentation (design, build and test) of a structural concrete component.
