(8) Compute pure axial load capacity from Equation (56).
Po = 0.85 f'dc (Ag - Ast) + Ast fdy
where Ag = 18 x 18
= 324 in2 and
Ast = 12 x 0.6
= 7.2 in2
Therefore,
Po = 0.85 x 5,000 (324 - 7.2) + 7.2 x 66,000
= 1,821,600 lb
(9) Ultimate capacity of the column from Equation (78):

(10) Provide ties.
For No. 7 longitudinal bars use No. 3 ties.
s < /= 16 (longitudinal bars) = 16 x 0.875
= 14 in
and
s < /= 48 (ties)  = 48 x 0.375
=  18 in
and
s < /= h/2 = 9 in
Use two No. 3 ties at 9 inches arranged as shown in
Figure 40.
