Please note: in the direction of the span, sv should not exceed 0.75d. At right angles to the span, horizontal spacing should be such that no longitudinal tension bar is more than 150mm from a vertical leg of a link; this spacing should not exceed d in any case.

Assuming <10% redistribution

0.0000 < 0.156 Hence no compression reinforcement is required
