spiral vs circular column ties

[Subject Prev][Subject Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next]
The ACI code restricts the spiral spacing for a concrete column to 3", with an associated increase in capacity, can one use spiral ties with the spacing of a circular tie ( say 8"o.c) if the extra column capacity is not needed? in other words, would a spiral spaced at more than 3" qualify as a circular tie ?
