SPR-4233: Implementing the Strut-and-Tie Method for the Design of Bridge Components

Bridge engineers routinely face designs that warrant the use of the strut-and-tie method (STM) and need guidance for its implementation. Tools and resources that aid with the STM design of common bridge components would benefit engineers and provide valuable time savings. The tasks of the project are aimed to develop STM guidance and tools specific to Indiana needs.
