Required stirrup spacing of two-legged #4 stirrups is
Maximum allowable spacing is d/2 = 30.5/2 = 15.25 in. (Section 184.108.40.206.)
Use 15-in. spacing for the portion of the beam bounded between the plastic hinge-length and the bottom bar splice at the center. Use 6 in. spacing for the length of splice (Fig. 4.39).
220.127.116.11. Frame Column Example: Special Reinforced Concrete Moment Frame
Given. A 34 in. x 34 in. column (column C2) with 10 # 11 vertical reinforcement. See Fig. 4.40. The column has been verified for the axial loads and bending moments resulting from the following ultimate load combinations.
Load combination Pu (kips) Mu (kip-ft) Vu (kips)
1 2372 0 0
2 2180 400 80
Beam moments framing into the column: Mleft = 848 kip-ft
-fright = -1055 kip-ft Nominal flexural strength of column at the beam-column joint. Above the joint = 1769 kip-ft Below the joint = 1819 kip-ft Clear height of column = 13 ft - beam depth
