And while were there...how about 1806 and the use of plain concrete for isolated
footings, provisions/exemptions defined?

Have a look at 1997 U.B.C. Section 1910.5 (all of it). What would be the
minimum amount of reinforcing to be used for a cast-in-place "pole-type"
footing? It seems appropriate that the provisions of 1910.5.1 & 1910.5.3
would apply (still) to these types of footings and that the provisions
stated in 1910.5.4 apply to "mat-type" or "spread" footings of uniform
thickness.

Comments??
