Özet

Purpose - Compared with conventional design methods, strut-and-tie modeling is a more suitable and even a superior method for the reinforcement layout design of structural members with uncommon geometrical shapes and/or regions essentially subject to shear effects. Because determination of the optimum strut-and-tie model for each of the members is an important task, implementation of a topology optimization method could be useful before the detailing stage. The paper aims to discuss these issues.
