I suggest drawing a sketch of a 10" column at a decent scale, showing all elements drawn to scale: concrete cover, ties drawn to full outside diameter of bar (at deformations, not just nominal bar diameter), full bar bend radius at corners, and verticals at "corners". Perhaps this will shed some light on why 10" columns aren't shown. (Personally, I prefer 14" columns as a minimum, but I often use 2-inches of cover on my projects.) -----Original Message----- From: David Bejan Tehranchi [mailto:dbt(--nospam--at)dbfinc.com] Sent: Friday, October 06, 2000 7:50 AM To: seaint(--nospam--at)seaint.org Subject: 10" Concrete Col. 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.
