Reinforced Concrete Corbel's Behavior using Strut and Tie Model
Journal of the Civil Engineering Forum
Reinforced concrete (RC) corbel is one of a disturbed region of elements of the structure. SNI 2847: 2013 as a guideline from Ministry of Public Works provides the design of RC corbels by the conventional method and with Strut and Tie Model (STM). The aim of this study is to determine and compare the behaviors of corbels experimentally that designed with both methods. The testing was conducted on two series of specimens and each series consisted of two specimens. Group 1 was designed using
... designed using conventional method while group 2 designed using Strut and Tie Model. The axial column was tested under 50 kN fixed axial loads and corbels was tested under monotonic loads gradually increased up to failure. The results showed that with the provided steel and compressive strength of concrete, the shear capacity using the conventional method by analysis and experimental respectively were 363.164 kN and 345.7 kN, while the shear capacity using Strut and Tie Model by analysis and experimental respectively were 306.953 kN and 299.35 kN. The shear capacity of specimens using conventional method was 13.40 % greater than by using Strut and Tie Model and the shear capacity for each conventional and STM method were 1.9232 and 1.6653 greater than designated load.
