horizontal bar distance below top of wall?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello:

How far can the first horizontal bar be below the top of a poured concrete
wall?  Code reference?  It seems you would need one in the first half of a
spacing to get your reinforcement ratio or if it was required for shear.  Is
there something that says you need to have reinforcement within a certain
definite distance?  Thanks.

Respectfully,
