I have seen an Auger cast pile with just two # 7 bars at the center in 16" dia pile, 50 feet deep. Which makes only close to .4% reinforcement. I think it should be minimum of 1 %. Any light this reinforcement. Has anyone seen such low reinforcement in ACIP piles.
Also my research has shown that minimum of 4 bars souls be provided with ties.
If anyone of you could shed more light on this, will highly appreciate. Thanks
