TRUSS MODEL AND FAILURE MECHANISM FOR BAR DEVELOPMENT IN C-C-T NODES

The author of this paper presents a truss model for a simple structure whose strength is governed by the development of a bar in a compression-compression-tension nodal zone (C-C-T node), as well as the failure mechanism compatible with the truss model. This representation clarifies the bond transfer and its dependence on the effects of such factors as the geometry, reinforcement details, and material strengths of the structure and its state of stress, which is influenced by supports and loading conditions. The modeling concepts highlighted also provide the foundation for consistent truss modeling of bar development in other nodal zones.
