I am on a project where the contractor has changed the requirement for bending a stud from the 30 deg that is in the D1.1 to holding us to only bend the stud to 15 deg to satisfy the Clause 7.6. We had several studs that are bend at 30 deg and are being told to bend them back to 15 deg. I am not sure that the D1.1 allows you to bend a stud back. The only Clause that I can find that comes close to addressing this is Clause 7.8.3 titled "Bent Stud Acceptance Criteria."
The question is can or can you not bend a stud back from the 30 deg to 15 deg.
