	Subject:	transverse reinforcement  for piles

	I have designed  a pile and grade beam foundation for a residence in
	Palo Alto. My Nonprestressed concrete pile has ties spacing is at 16
"
	o.c. but the plan checker came back with a comment that the ties
should
	be design to be spaced according to UBC section 1921.4.4.1. Has
anyone
	used this section to design the spacing of the transverse
reinforcement?
	If so, can anyone be kind enough to walk me through the formula:

	Sec. 1921.4.4.1 Transverse Reinforcement

	 2. The total cross-section area of rectangular hoop reinforcement
	shall  not be less that the given by formulas (21-3) and
(21-4)

	Thank you for any respond.

	The novice
