>>There was a guideline that was developed for Butler Manufacturing called

>>There is no real code guidance here.  You will just have to use first

>>acceptable performance (crack acceptability), and calculate the flexural
>>reinforcing, the temperature / shrinkage reinforcing, and the reinforcing
>>required to develop the thrust in the hairpins.

>> Hello all,
>> I apologize if this is a discussion that has been brought up before.
>> What minimum amount of reinforcing meets Code requirements when
>>hairpins are
>> present in a slab-on-grade with, perhaps, fork lift traffic but no
>> storage rack leg loads? It seems that it would be appropriate to at
>> provide enough steel required to transfer the hairpin forces and tie
>> everything together (possible unequal distribution of support for
>> loads, etc.), but is there a need to consider the minimums per
>> 1907.12 as applicable?
>> This may be one of those "bonehead" questions, but I'd like to know
>>what the
>> consensus is (if there is one).
