If the length of any side of the hoopexceeds 300 mm, a crosstie shall be provided (Fig.7B).Alternatively, a pair of overlapping hoops may be provided withinthe column (see Fig.7C). The hooks shall engage peripherallongitudinal bars.
b) Arrangement of transverse reinforcement:
1) If the longitudinal bars are not spaced more than 75 mm oneither side, transverse reinforcement need only to go round corner and alternate bars for the purpose of providing effective lateralsupports (see Fig.8).2) If the longitudinal bars spaced at distance of not exceeding 48times the diameter of the tie are effectively tied in two directions by open ties (seeFig.9).13920 93 7.4.8 The area of cross section, Ash, of the bar forming rectangular hoop, to be used as special confining reinforcement shall not beless than0.181
