Abstract: The steel bearing which is equivalent to a steel cantilever embedded in concrete and anchored by an rebar anchored in the stemm of the TT is transfering the dead load from a TT-beam to a supporting beam. The supporting beam can have a rectangular shape so that no intrusive and work intensive nibs are necessary. This provides technical as well as architectural advantages.

Additional reinforcement together with the steel cantilever of the steel bearing helps to transfer the live load to the supporting beam so that the whole construction works together between steel and concrete. The whole design provides the user with a couple of advantages which are discussed in the following article.
