A new strut-tie model using secant stiffness, Direct Inelastic Strut-Tie Model, was developed. Since basically the proposed design method uses linear analysis, it is convenient and stable in numerical analysis. At the same time, the proposed design method can accurately estimate the inelastic strength and ductility demands of struts and ties because it can analyzes the inelastic behavior of structure using iterative calculations for secant stiffness. In the present study, the procedure of the proposed design method was established, and a computer program incorporating the proposed method was developed. Design examples using the proposed method were presented, and its advantages were highlighted by the comparison with the traditional strut-tie model. The Direct Inelastic Strut-Tie Model, as an integrated analysis/design method, can directly address the design strategy intended by the engineer to prevent development of macro-cracks and brittle failure of struts. Since the proposed model can analyze the inelastic deformation, indeterminate strut-tie model can be used. Also, since the proposed model controls the local deformations of struts and ties, it can be used as a performance-based design method for various design criteria.
