This book examines the application of strut-and-tie models (STM) for the design of structural concrete. It presents state-of-the-art information, from fundamental theories to practical engineering applications, and also provides innovative solutions for many design problems that are not otherwise achievable using the traditional methods.

Author(s) Description

Dr. S. E. Metwally has broad experience in the structural design of many municipal and industrial structures, bridges, and large-scale roof structures. His academic positions in Egypt include Head of the Structural Engineering Department at El-Mansoura University and Tanta University, Professor of Concrete Structures at El-Mansoura University, Alexander von Humboldt fellow at the Institute of Structural Design, University of Stuttgart, and Visiting Professor at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. Dr. Metwally obtained his Ph.D. from Purdue University, and his M.S. from George Washington University.

Dr. Wai-Fah Chen is a well-respected leader in the field of plasticity, structural stability, and structural steel design over the past half-century. He has made major contributions introducing the mathematical theory of plasticity to civil engineering practice, especially in the application of limit analysis methods to the geotechnical engineering field.
