Professor Priyan Mendis
Professor in the Department of Infrastructure Engineering - Melbourne University

Mr. Roco Carinci
Managing Director - Rincovitch Consultants


Strut-and-tie modeling is a powerful engineering tool where the engineer stays in control. With a reasonable amount of experience, it can help design engineers provide simple engineering solutions to complex structural problems.
Strut-and-tie modeling provides a powerful and a simplistic analysis and design technique for many common design cases such as deep beams, pile caps, transfer structures etc. Conventional design methods do not apply to these cases.
This course serves as a significant step in providing the knowledge required for strut-and-tie to be used in a proper and more efficient manner for concrete design.
