Re: Large Rebar Detailing

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
Footing thickness is another thing to check in conjunction with large column bars.  It may not be possible to develop a large column vert hook into an 18" thick footing, for example.  I have had at least one job where the need to develop the column bars controlled the footing thickness.

I am detailing some concrete beams and columns with #10 - #14 bars.  I
usually don't detail these large bars.  Are there any words of wisdom
someone can share about things to consider using this size bar?  I know one
thing I saw in the past is the sweep radius of large bar hooks can cause
problems.  Anything else I should be sure to consider?  I do have a beam and
column joint to detail.
