Title: RE: ACI Code requirement: ties at steel column pedestal

I think you are refering to "two #4 ties located within 4 inches from the top of the column or pier"  Special provision for Anchor bolts in tops of columns BOCA 96' reference 1913.1.3

I believe this is an ACI requirement, but do not know the section off hand.

I give up! I can't find it!

My boss remebers a code requirement for ties around anchor bolts for steel
columns and/or at the tops of concrete pedestals for steel columns.  We have
only been able to find the requirement in the earthquake section of UBC 97, but
not for general loading or in any other code.

If anyone knows where this code requirement can be found, PLEASE REPLY!

Also, your usual practice and engineering judgement is also appreciated.
