How to create the most realistic strut-and-tie model using the Topology optimization tool

This article is also available in:

The Topology optimization gives you the precise alignment of compression and tension fields in the concrete structure based on the input geometry and loads. This can be used not only for the efficient reinforcement design but also for the creation of S&T model if you wish to compare the two approaches (CSFM and S&T).
