Hello Fellow Engineers, I came across a peer reviewer's recommendation pertaining to my footing detail reinforcing steel. It shows reinforcing steel in the transverse direction that are straight. The peer reviewer recommended that they be hooked at each end (hooked upwards) and provide longitudinal bars inside each hook. I hate to sound like a grizzled contractor, but I have been doing this for ("X" amount) of years, and have never been told to do this. I discussed this with the peer reviewer and the explanation given did not make sense. Basically, the bars need hooks to provide proper for shrinkage resistance. I thought the rebar deformed shape does that. FYI, temperature/shrinkage reinforcement requirements govern over flexural strength requirements. Anyways, I just want to get your take on this. Is there an ACI/IBC requirement I overlooked? Cheers, Ricardo G. Gonzalez, P.E.
