I have an 18" square concrete column that has very little uplift and shear forces (couple kips). According to section 22.214.171.124 in 318-08 taking d/2 would require tie spacing of 7" c-c. This seams excessive as I normally see these ties spaced at 16" c-c. Could anyone provide more insight or is the d/2 pretty solid?
