09.05.2011 - Design of reinforced concrete corbels

published in magazine BFT International 03/2011

This article presents two selected models for designing reinforced concrete corbels and compares them with test results. In addition, guidance is given on the anchorage of the tension tie reinforcement, in particular in the corbel, and the distinct features and benefits of using the HALFEN Stud Connector (HSC) are outlined. The verification and detailing of the shear joint and an alternative stirrup design are presented for the purpose of largely separating the construction of the corbel from the primary construction process.
