I think that a 10" concrete column is too small for constructabilty reasons. You need a few inches for cover, then you must allow 3/ 4" for #3 ties, then you have to place your vertical rebar. Somehow you need to get the concrete in there. Good luck with a 10" column, I suppose it's possible, but you won't save the owner any money. Regards, Nick.

I've noticed in several publications that the smallest listing for round concrete columns is 12" diameter. Is there any particular reason for this? My situation that the Architect has spec'ed out 12" dia. columns which are overkill. Any reason (i.e. code) that 10" diameter wouldn't be allowed? TIA, David B. Tehranchi Davis, Bowen, Friedel, Inc.
