Re: one way & two way standard bar cut-off

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]

If you cannot figure it out from Chapter 13 of ACI, go back to engineering logic and calculate it. If you do, you will quite often find that the deemed to comply information in the code (yes it is a guestimate of something you can calculate easily using normal design rules stated in the code and text books) is actually unconservative.

hello everybody,
I'm confuse with the standard bar cut-off of one way & two way slab with beams with straight bar reinforcement arrangement. I have read a lot of references, particularly the book of J.G McGregor and I found out that the top bar cut off are the following:
one way slab: L/4 from exterior support & L/3 from interior support (whichever is bigger between the two succesive span)
Is this also applicable for two way slab with beams that have a straight bar arrangement?
Thank you so much.
