Abstract: The 1996 FIP Recommendations Practical Design of Structural Concrete were finally published by SETO in September 1999. They had been developed based on the 1990 CEB-FIP Model Code.
The main objective of this Bulletin is now to demonstrate by practical examples the application of these recommendations, and especially to illustrate the use of strut-and-tie models for designing discontinuity regions in concrete structures. These examples represent also a continuation of the 1990 FIP Handbook on Practical Design that had been based on the former (1984) version of the recommendations. Most of the examples are recently built existing structures. Although some of them may be considered as quite important, the chosen examples are by no means exceptional.
The technical report does not deal with the discussion of aesthetic or general conceptual aspects. On the contrary, the main aim is to treat particular design aspects by selecting local regions of the chosen structures, that are then designed and detailed following the design principles and specifications proposed in the 1996 FIP Recommendations mentioned above.
The document is believed to be of interest to all engaged in the design of structural concrete. It hopefully supports the use of more consistent design and detailing tools like strut-and-tie models
