I have a semi-circle column, 14" in diameter supporting a balcony slab. The equivalent circular compression member for this column shape is adequate to carry the design load. ACI 318 (188.8.131.52) states that the vertical spacing of the ties should not exceed the least dimension of the compression member, i.e., 7" for this matter. If the builder spaced the ties at 8", should I be concerned?
