RE: Minimum Reinforcement Ratio for Footings

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
If you are referring to transverse reinforcement in a wall footing, don't
overlook the possibility of designing it as "Structural Plain Concrete" per
chapter 22.

Subject:	Minimum Reinforcement Ratio for Footings

What is the minimum reinforcement ratio for footings?  ACI318-1989 seems not
too clear regarding this one but in ACI318-1995 says "For structural slabs
and footings , ......" (Clause 10.5.4).
Any thoughts fellow structural engineers?..
