RELIABILITY ANALYSIS OF RIGID PILE CAPS USING AN ITERATIVE STRUT-AND-TIE MODEL

The aim of this work is to present a new strut-and-tie model for design of rigid pile caps based on the concept of magnified area under the column. In this magnified area, compressive stresses have been reduced enough not to cause crushing of the struts. An iterative algorithm is used to determine the required depth of the magnified area. The model considers both failure by crushing of the compressed struts and by yielding of the tie reinforcement. A large number of experimental results
