Reinforcement coefficients for concrete walls :
Following are the different coefficients of reinforcement used for or a plain concrete wall & reinforced concrete wall.
- For your kind information, transverse steel is not required in plain concrete wall construction.
- 0.12% & 0.15% vertical steel is required for a plain concrete wall (Important note: 0.12% for HYSD bar and 0.15% for mild steel bar.)
- In case of a reinforced concrete wall, 0.4 % minimum vertical reinforcement is provided
- Again transverse steel is not needed for reinforced concrete wall
