4.3.12 Stirrup Spacing
All beams have stirrups spaced at d/2 or less throughout their length and at 8 db, or less at potential hinge locations.
For conforming buildings, the evaluator may consider this condition as mitigated, and no calculations are necessary. The deficiency is in the strength and ductility of the beam. Determine if the stirrups meet the specified spacing requirements, such that the yield capacity of the beam can be developed.
