General Meeting Main Presentation:
“DESIGN OF STRUCTURAL CONCRETE USING THE STRUT-AND-TIE METHOD”
With the updates to the Strut-and-Tie Method (STM) in AASHTO LRFD 8th Edition, there have been many questions regarding the use and understanding of STM. As a local expert on STM, Dr. Robin Tuchscherer will give some background on the STM and will answer a series of common questions and points of confusion. Some questions were submitted prior, but please send any additional questions you may have to Nathan Merrill, or be prepared to ask them at the presentation.
