depth of footing above bottom reinforcement

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
ACI 318 15.7 - Minimum footing depth
Depth of footing above bottom reinforcement shall not be less than 6 in. for footings on soil, nor less than 12 in. for footings on piles.
 
Does "depth of footing" refer to 'd' as defined by 318 or Df as used in foundation design?
 
Thanks.
