Strut-and-tie models: How to design concrete members using strut-and-tie models in accordance with Eurocode 2
Presents theory and worked examples for new users of strut and tie modelling, covering design and analysis. The STM method allows simple solutions to be applied in complex concrete structures and is used on non-standard elements. Explores the design process, looking at development, choice and optimisation of the STM. Then takes a closer look at the members and design factors.

The Concrete Centre
The Concrete Centre is the central development organisation for the UK concrete sector and provides material, design and construction guidance. Their aim is to enable all those involved in the design, use and performance of concrete to realise the potential of the material. Funded by 15 major cement and concrete organisations, the Concrete Centre works alongside the British Cement Association, The Concrete Society, and the ready mix and precast concrete industries to ensure an integrated approach from the concrete sector to technical support, research, education, training and information services. The Reinforced Concrete Council and the Ready Mixed Concrete Bureau are now part of The Concrete Centre.
