What is the maximum reinforcement ratio ? 0.5 rho b per 218.104.22.168(.5) UBC Section 222.214.171.124 limits rho=0.5 rho(bal) for slender walls. Is this limit applicablle to beam design? Yes. MIA Handbook has strength design tables with 0.75 rho(bal) limiting value. Can this limit be used for masonry beam design. The design tables have a foot note indicating 75% limit per UBC Sec. 1910.3.3 ( Concrete). Is there any mention in UBC to use 75% limit for masonry design? No. Is the strength design limited to slender wall? No.
