Concrete cover over conventional reinforcing adjacent to grade

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
TO THOSE WHO ARE INTERESTED:

PLEASE REVIEW UBC '97 SECTIONS 1907.7.1.1, 1915.7 AND TABLE 18-1-C FOR
CONCRETE COVEREAGES OF REINFORCING STEEL.

I INTERPRET A CONFLICT (IN WHICH CASE THE MOST RESTRICTIVE WOULD APPLY")
IN THESE SECTIONS.

A PLAN QUESTIONER (NOT TO BE CONFUSED WITH A PLAN CHECKER OR REVIEWER),
INSISTS ON A 10" THICK FOOTING FOR SIMPLE FOOTINGS TO CONFORM TO
1907.7.1.1??

OTHER INTERPRETATIONS???
