RE: seismic design manual - volume 1

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
I don't think I would ever use two curtains of rebar in an 8" wall, unless I
was desperate.  There isn't much space left over for consolidation with a
vibrator (especially considering the poor workmanship that is sometimes
evidenced when there is plenty of space available).

ACI 14.3.4 requires two layers of steel for walls greater than 10 inches
thick. Concrete seminars commonly will include recommendations to use two
layers for eight inches or more.
