posted Mar 8, 2014, 11:27 PM by Domain Admin
To develop understanding of designers in defining the portion of structures as B- or D- regions, tons of examples of D-Regions are provided in this blog. 

D-Regions example 01

This example illustrates D-Regions defined as the followings:

 1)  corbel of a column with transition of cross section 

 2) knee joint connection of a reinforced concrete frame 

 3) dapped ends or half joint of a reinforced concrete girder including the opening inside the girder. 

The concept of defining those D-Regions is to adopt the discontinuity of dimensions or cross section.
