RE:Pile Cap Design--Strut and Tie method

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

            Michael,

                        I do not know how it is applied in the strut and tie method, but well-confined concrete can carry more than the doubled usual capacity allowed in Chapter 10 of ACI 318. Confinement can be created by ties or by a mass of concrete around the bearing.
