 Summary:
 Technical beam theory is not applicable for the analysis of non-standard reinforced concrete structural elements (D-region), especially when members are exposed to significant shear stress and/or torsion. In this case strut – and – tie models (STM), which give reliable results, are used. In this paper we present a review of theoretical bases and application of STM for design. The focuse is also on the detailing of pile caps for diferent numbers of piles (2, 3 and 4) in the foundation. Some international recommendations are also commented (ACI, EN 1992, etc.).
