DESIGN OF MONOLITHIC CORBELS AND BRACKETS ACCORDING TO ACI 318 – 99

A corbel is a short cantilever projecting out from a column, a wall, or the side of a beam. A corbel is designed to support another member, usually a beam or girder, but may also be used to support a slab. ACI 318 restricts the term “corbel” to a member having span-to-depth ratio which is less than or equal to 1.0.
