Re: horizontal bar distance below top of wall?

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I think it doesn't matter.  Either I need it for reinforcement ratio, or I
need it for shear, the total amount of steel for the reason I provide
reinforcement steel there, is the same in every situation (reinforcement
ratio, or shear).  Therefore, I think it is dictated by practical reasons
(like for instance, how I tie the bars, relation with other bars in that
part of the wall etc.)
