4.3.9 Column-Bar Splices
All column bar lap splice lengths are greater than 35 db, long and are enclosed by ties spaced at 8 db, or less.
The deficiency is in the strength and ductility of the column. Compare the splice length provided with that required by Sections 12.2 and 12.15 of the ACI 318 provisions. Conforming buildings which do not meet this criteria shall be placed in SPC 4.
