Lap for circular RC column ties

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Hello members of the list

I have two questions regarding development of ties in circular columns. I
have searched ACI 318-02 but have not come up with anything specific.  I am
wondering if anyone on the list can help me with their experience:

1. What is the lap length required for circular column ties when they are
not anchored in the column core? Is it compression lap or tension lap? 

2. Are the ties considered to be top bars or other bars?

Any help would be appreciated.
