Design of concrete Deep Beams according to ACI318-19 metric. New Version.
This program designs deep beams (span to depth ratio <4) based on the full implementation of the Strut-and-Tie method as described in Chapter 23 of ACI318-19. Yes, it is real; the problematic design of deep beams is now possible thanks to the innovative use of the STM without any approximation. Design with few clicks’ deep beams of any height (it could be a bearing wall with a large opening at the ground floor) submitted to uniform, trapezoidal loads or a concentrated force. Extensive design note is generated where the verifications of struts, ties and nodes of any shape are performed!
The program respects the minimal allowable inclination angle of struts, and if not possible, it automatically generates a new truss system with more members added in order to match Code requirements.
Please try the Demo Version and note that:
- There is a limitation on concrete and steel materials characteristics.
