Table 188.8.131.52—Maximum permissible strength reduction factors
|Strength||Classification||Transverse reinforcement||Maximum permissible ϕ|
|Flexure, axial, or both||Tension controlled||All cases||1.0|
|Shear, torsion, or both||0.8|
(a) Test loads shall be applied only when calculations indicate the isolated precast member will not fail by compression or buckling.
(b) The test load, when applied to the precast member alone, shall induce the same total force in the tensile reinforcement as would be produced by loading the composite member with the test load in accordance with 27.4.2.
