F. The allowable shearing stress in the cal- 
culations of beams where the maximum shear- 
ing stress in a section is used as the means of 
measuring the resistance to diagonal tension 
stress shall not exceed 40 lbs. per sq. in. for 
1-2-4 mix, nor 50 lbs. per sq. in. for l-l%-3 
mix, for beams with longitudinal bars only and

of this shear shall be borne by the steel. 

G. The allowable unit tensile stress on steel 
reinforcing bars shall not exceed 16,000 lbs. 
per sq. in. 



H. The allowable compressive stress on

68 ORDINANCES. 

50 lbs, per sq. in. respectively. Hooks, if Lent 
at a radius of three diameters, shall be consid-

L. Minimum thickness of slabs and walls 
given in this chapter apply to fireproof con- 
struction only. 

Genera] Assumption of Design. 
Span Lengths of Beams and Slabs. 

A. For slabs and beams simply supported 
the span length shall be taken as the distance 
center to center of supports, but need not be 
taken to exceed the clear span plus the depth 
of beam or slab. 

B. For continuous or restrained beams built 
mouolithically into supports, the span length 
may be taken as the clear distance between sup- 
ports. 

C. If brackets are provided under beams, 
which make an angle of 45 degrees or more, with 
the axis of a restrained beam, the span may be 
measured from a section where the depth of 
bracket below beam is 1-3 of the depth of the 
beam. 

I). The maximum negative moments are to 
be considered as existing at the end of the span 
as herein denned. 



OEDINANCES. by 

T-Beams. 

A. Where slabs are cast integral with the 
beams or girders, such beams may be considered 
as tee beams and the slab considered an integral 
part of the beam, provided the beam or girder 
is reinforced throughout by stirrups extending 
into the slab to within one inch of the top. 

B. The assumed effective width of a tee 
beam shall not exceed one-sixth the span length 
on either side of the beam nor shall the over- 
hand on either side of the web exceed six times 
the thickness of the slab, nor shall the total 
effective width on either side of center of beam 
exceed three-eighths of the distance between 
centers of adjoining beams. 

C. Where reinforcement of the slab does not 
cross the beam at right angles, transverse rein- 
forcement shall be used between the points of 
inflection at least equal in area to the slab rein- 
forcement, but never less than % per cent, of 
the cross sectional area of concrete, these rods 
to extend not less than the thickness of slab 
beyond assumed outer edges of the tee beams. 

D. In calculating strength of tee beams, the 
compression of the concrete area in the stem 
shall be neglected. 

Beams Reinforced for Compression. 

A. Where beams are reinforced for compres- 
sion it shall be assumed that compressive steel 
will be stressed not to exceed 10,000 lbs. per 
sq. in. 

B. The amount of compressive steel to be 
figured as contributing moment shall not ex- 
ceed 1 per cent, of the area of the concrete. 



TO ORDINANCES. 

C. The moment of a beam so reinforced 
shall be measured as to its steel or tensile 
moment as a similar beam without compressive 
steel and its concrete or compressive moment 
shall be assumed as the sum of (a) the com- 
pressive moment found in a beam of like dimen- 
sions with tensile reinforcing only and (b) the 
product of the compressive steel area multiplied 
by the product of the lever arm (which shall be 
assumed as the distance centers of gravity of 
compressive and tensile steel) and the allowable 
unit compressive stress. 

Floor and Slabs. 

No roof slab shall be less than 3" thick nor 
less than l/40th of the span; no floor slabs shall 
be less than 3%" thick nor less than l/32nd 
of the span. 

Continuous Beams and Slabs. 

A. For beams and floor slabs simply sup- 
ported at ends, moment shall be taken at Wl/8 
at center of span for uniform load. W repre- 
senting the total load and 1 the length. 

B. For beams and floor slabs continuous over 
two spans only and for end spans of systems 
continuous over more than two spans with ends 
restrained the moment shall be taken as Wl/10 
at the first support from end and also at center 
of span. 

C. For beams and floor slabs continuous over 
more than two spans, the moment shall be taken 
as Wl/12 for interior spans at center of span 
and the reinforcing for negative moment over 
supports shall be proportioned for Wl/12.

D. The above rules apply to uniform load- 
ing only, for concentrated loads the momenta 
will be taken as proportionate to the momenta 
developed in simple beams under similar load- 
ing multiplied by <>. s for par. 8 and 2 3 for 
par. C. 

Bond Stress. 

A. All steel shall be embedded in concrete 
to develop a bund stress at least equal to the 
tensile stress developed. 

B. The bond stress for plain bars embedded 
in 1-2-4 concrete shall be assumed at SO lbs. per 
sq. in., while for drawn wire this will be re- 
duced to 40 lbs. The bond stress for deformed 
bars shall be assumed at 100 lbs. per sq. in. 

C. For 1-1 %-3 concrete these values become 
100, 50 and 125 lbs. per sq. in., respectively. 

D. If end of reinforcing bar is bent around 
to form a curve with a diameter not less than 
3 times the diameter of the bar, bond stress 
may be considered to be increased 25 r r in all 
cases over values given above, but no additional 
bond stress will be allowed for hooks not bent 
as stated above. 

Web. Shear and Stirrups. 

A. Stirrups shall be provided in all beams 
throughout the length of the beam and propor- 
tioned for two-thirds of the total shear developed 
at the point under consideration. 

E. The area of concrete in a beam required 
to resist shear shall not be less than the shear 
in pounds divided by 105 for 1-2-4 concrete and 
13 for 1-1 %-3 concrete; the depth of beam shall 



72 ORDINANCES. 

be taken as the distance from top of concrete to 
center of gravity of tensile steel. One-third of 
this shear shall be assumed to be carried by con- 
crete, balance by stirrups. 

C. The area of perpendicular stirrups shall 
be determined by the formula 

' As— fV/Jdf s 
As being the area of steel required in stirrups in 
a length of beam equal to jd. V — equal total 
shear. 

D. For stirrups bent up at an angle of be- 
tween 30 deg. and 45 deg. 75% of the area 
specified under par. 0, may be used. 

E. Bent up bars shall not be considered as 
taking stress usually carried by stirrups. 

F. The first stirrups shall be placed not more 
than 2" from the end of beam and vertical 
stirrups shall be spaced not farther apart than 
one-half of the depth of beam where the stirrups 
are calculated by the method outlined under 
par. C. 

Where the concrete area, however, is sufficient 
to take all shear at point under consideration, 
the spacing may be increased to %d. Where 
stirrups are inclined at an angle of between 30 
and 45 deg., spacing may be increased 50% 
over the limits above. 

Columns. 

A. Rodded columns shall be reinforced with 
longitudinal reinforcement of not less than 
%% llor more than 4% and with lateral ties 
not less than 1 / 4" in diameter, not less than 12"

C. The formulas given pars. A. and B. are to 
apply only to hooped or rodded columns of less 
unsupported height than 15 times the outside 
diameter or least width, and only the area of 
concrete within hoops shall be considered in 
calculations for bearing capacity, but the out- 
side of spirals shall be covered by at least 1%" 
of concrete. 

J). For hooped columns of a height greater 
than 15 times their least width, working stresses 
shall be reduced by multiplying them by the

due to an eccentric loading will be determined 
by the formula, 

fce=Med/2l, 
in which fee is the additional load on column 
in lbs. per sq. in. due to moment. Med is mo- 
ment of eccentric load in inch lbs. d is outside 
diameter of column in inches or width of col- 
umn in direction of stress, and 1 is moment of 
inertia of column in inches.

wall columns for flat slab construction, one-half 
the moment in consideration shall be assumed to 
act on the entire length of both the column 
above and the column below the floor considered, 
the other half may be taken up by additional 
rods extending at least to the third point of each 
column. 

Footing. 

A. In rectangular column footings the maxi- 
mum bending moment shall be considered as 
existing at the center of column and shall be 
assumed as the sum of positive and negative 
moments due to \[± of the load acting at the 
center of gravity of triangular formed by the 
diagonals of footings and sides of column and 
footing. 

B. The steel shall be placed not less than 4" 
from bottom of footing and the lower 4" shall 
not be considered in determining the strength of 
slab. 

C. Punching shear shall be assumed at 120 
lbs. per sq. in. for 1-2-4 concrete and 150 lbs. 
for l-l%-3 concrete, and the concrete alone 
shall be assumed as carrying this stress and no 
additional steel reinforcement need be provided.

on the column. In case of excess, the ex- 
cess shall be considered a live load. 

The area of footings shall have the same 
ratio to each other as the dead plus one- 
third live loads coming upon them. That 
footing which receives the largest percent- 
age of live load shall be proportioned for 
the combined dead and live loads. The 
dead pins one-third live load on this foot- 
ing shall be divided by the area thus found, 
and this reduced pressure per square foot 
shall be used for the dead pins one-third 
live load of all foundations.

The metal. shall be protected by V/ 2 inches 
of concrete for girders, beams, piers and col- 
umns, and 1 in. for floor slabs. 

General Assumption of Design. 
Span Lengths of Beams and Slabs. 

For slabs and beams simply supported, the 
span length shall he taken as the distance cen- 
ter to center of supports, but need not be taken 
to exceed the (deal- span plus the depth of beam 
of slab. 

For continuous or restrained beams built 
menolithieallv int.. supports, the span length 
may be taken as the clear distance between sup- 
ports. 

If brackets are provided under beams, which 
make an angle of 4:> degrees or more, with the 
axis of a restrained beam, the span may be 
measured from a section where the depth of 
bracket below beam is 1 :) of the depth of the 
beam. 



ORDINANCES. 311 

The maximum negative moments are to be 
considered as existing at the end of the span as 
herein denned. 

In calculating the moment of resistance of 
beams, the tensile stresses in the concrete are 
neglected. 

T Beams. 

Where slabs are east integral with the beams 
or girders, such beams may be considered as 
tee beams and the slab considered an integral 
part of the beam, provided the beam or girder 
is reinforced throughout by stirrups extending 
into the slab to within one inch of the top. 

The assumed effective width of a tee beam 
shall not exceed one-sixth the span length on 
cither side of the beam nor shall the overhang 
on either side of the web exceed six times the 
thickness of the slab, nor shall the total effective 
width on either side of center beam exceed three- 
eighths of the distance between centers of ad- 
joining beams. 

Where reinforcement of the slab does not 
cross the beam at right angles, transverse rein- 
forcement shall be used between the points of 
inflection at least equal in area to the slab rein- 
forcement, but never less than l/o P er cen t of 
the cross sectional area of concrete, these rods 
to extend not less than the thickness of slab be- 
yond assumed outer edges of the tee beams. 

hi calculating strength of tee beams, the 
compression of the concrete area in the stem 
shall be neglected. 

Beams Reinforced for Compression. 
Where beams are reinforced for compression 
it shall be assumed that compressive steel will 
be stressed not to exceed 10,000 lbs. per sq. 
inch. 



312 ORDINANCES. 

The amount of compressive steel to be fig- 
ured as contributing moments shall not exceed 
1 per cent, of the area of the concrete. 



Continuous Beams and Slabs. 

For heat ns and floor slabs simply supported 
at ends, moments shall be taken at WL/8 at 
center of span for uniform load. AY represent- 
ing the total load and L the length. 

For beams and floor slabs continuous over 
two spans only and for end spans of systems 
continuous over more than two spans with ends 
restrained the moment shall be taken as AA^L/10 
at the first support from end and also at center 
of span. 

For beams and floor slabs continuous over 
more than two spans, the moment shall betaken 
as WL/12 for interior spans at center of span 
and the reinforcing for negative moments over 
supports shall be proportioned for WL/12. 

The above rules apply to uniform loading 
only, for concentrated loads the moments will 
be taken as proportionate to the moments de- 
veloped in simple beams under similar loading 
multiplied by 0.8 for par. 8 and 2/3 for par. C. 

Columns. 

Rodded columns shall be reinforced with 
longitudinal reinforcement of not less than \% 
nor more than 4 '< and with lateral ties not Less 
than I'i'' in diameter, not less than 12" apart 
nor more than 10 diameters of the longitudinal 
bar. Total safe load in pounds=50€ AC + 
7,500 avs. tor l-i>-4 mix and 625 AC+7,500 
avs. for L-1%-3 mix, in which AC equals area 
of concrete within hoops and avs. equals cross 
section area of vertical steel, both given in 
square inches. 



ORDINANCES. 313 

Hooped columns shall be reinforced with 
longitudinal reinforcement of not less than 1'- 
nor more than .V < and with circular hoops or 
spirals nor loss than 1% of the volume of the 
concrete and spaced not more than one-sixth of 
the diameter of the column apart and not more 
than 3 inches. Total safe load in pounds equal 
850AC+10,O0Oavs, for 1-2 -4 mix and 1,050AC 
+10,000 avs. for l-lVo-3 mix. The formulas 
given in pars. A and B are to apply only to 
hooped or rodded columns of less unsupported 
height than 15 times the outside diameter or 
least width, and only the area of concrete with- 
in hoops shall be considered in calculations for 
bearing capacity, but the outside of spirals shall 
be covered by at least 1%" of concrete.

The live load per sq. ft. of floor area shall 
not be less than one hundred pounds (100 lbs.). 



3 7 6 ORDINANCES. 

The live load per sq. ft. of roof shall not be 
less than thirty pounds (30 lbs.). 

The specified live load may be reduced ten 
per cent. (10%) for members carrying two 
hundred or more sq. ft. of floors. 

For columns, the load on top floors may be 
assumed at 90 per cent, of the specified live 
load. The live load on the floor next below 
S T» per cent., and decreasing on each succeed- 
ing lower floor by 5 per cent., provided that 
on no floor less than 50 per cent, of the speci- 
fied live load shall be used, and provided that 
for the lower floor the full specified live load 
shall be used. 'No reduction in live load shall 
be allowed for roofs. 

Retaining Walls. 

Retaining walls supporting earth banks shall 
be designed on the basis of minimum weight of 
earth at 100 pounds per cubic ft. at an angle 
of repose of 30 degrees. 

Foundations. 

The live load of foundations shall be assumed 
to be the same as those on the lower sections of 
columns. Xo wind load, however, need be con- 
sidered unless it exceeds one-half the sum of 
the live and dead loads on the column. In 
ease of excess, the excess shall be considered a 
live load. 

The areas of footings shall have the same 
ratio to each other as the dead pins one-third 
live loads coming upon them. That footing 
which receives the largest percentage of live 
load shall be proportioned for the combined 
dead ;iiid live loads. The dead plus one-third 
live lo;i<l on this footing shall be divided l>v

crete on direct bearing and bending shall be 
assumed at six hundred and fifty pounds (650 
lbs.) per square inch for 1-2-4 mix and eight 
hundred pounds (800 lbs.) per square inch 
for l-l%-3 mix. 

The allowable punching shear on concrete 
shall not exceed one hundred and twenty pounds 
(120 lbs.) per square inch for 1-2-4 mix nor 
one hundred and fifty pounds (150 lbs.) per 
square inch for l-l%-3 mix. 

The allowable unit tension stress on steel re- 
inforcing bars shall not exceed sixteen thou- 
sand pounds (16,000 lbs.) per square inch. 

The allowable bond stress between concrete 
and steel rods shall not exceed eighty pounds

and for l-l%-3 mix these stresses may be in- 
creased to 100, 120 and 1~><> lbs. per sq. in., re- 
spectively. Hooks, if bent at a radius of three 
diameters, shall be considered as further in- 
creasing the bond-stress by 20 per cent, in all 
cases. 

The modulus of elasticity shall be taken as 
one-fifteenth of that of steel when a 1-2-4 mix 
is used and one-twelfth, in case a l-l%-3 mix is

ing- eight feet (8' 0"). 

B. It may also be used for fire protection 
purposes where not required to carry loads. 

C. All cinders used shall be hard vitreous 
clinker, free from sulphides, unburned coal or 
ashes of a size passing a 1" ring and retained on 
a %" ring.

ders. 

E. The ratio of the moduli of elasticity of 
steel to cinder concrete shall be taken as 30 
and the allowable unit stress of cinder concrete

upper section does not bear fully on lower sec- 
tion. 

All columns shall have their bearing ends 
milled, except that in one-story structures, col- 
umns carrying a load less than 40,000 lbs. need 
not have milled ends.

In no case shall the overturning moment due 
to wind pressure exceed 75 per cent, of the 
moment of stability of the dead load of the 
building. 

In the structure exposed to wind, if the re- 
sisting moments of the ordinary materials of 
construction, such as masonry partitions, floors 
and connections, are not sufficient to resist the 
moment due to wind pressure taken in any 
direction on any part of the building, addi- 
tional bracing shall be introduced to resist the 
wind stresses.

No. 2. 

Whereas, Fort McHenry is probably the most 
notable national heritage of the City of Balti- 
more in that it was the scene of the defense of 
the liberties of the American Colonies in the 
War of 1812-14, and is the birth place of the 
"Star Spangled Banner/' written on that occa- 
sion ; 

And whereas the members of the Society of the 
War of 1812, being composed of descendants of 
those who fought during that war and numerous 
other citizens-members of patriotic societies, are 
most anxious that this hallowed ground should 
be preserved as a spot sacred to the patriotism 
of the citizens of the United States ; 

And whereas a bill has been recently intro- 
duced in the House of Representatives (H. R. 
5261 ) by the Honorable J. Charles Linthicum, 
Member of Congress from this State, by the 
terms of which Fort McHenry would be placed 
in the care of the Secretary of War for preser- 
vation as a National Park; 

And whereas the Mayor and City Council of 
Baltimore, representing the feelings and desires 
of her citizens on the subject, are in most hearty 
accord with the objects of said bill; 

Now therefore be it resolved by the Mayor 
and City Council of Baltimore aforesaid that 
said bill be and the same is fully approved by 
them. 

And be it further resolved that the Congress 
of the United States is hereby petitioned to pass 
the said bill without delay to the end that fur- 
ther destruction of said property may be pre- 
vented and that the same shall be set apart, pre- 



460 RESOLUTIONS. 

served and venerated by all true lovers of our 
country for all time. 

And be \it further resolved that the members 
of Congress from this State be earnestly re- 
quested to oo-operate in the fullest measure in 
having said bill enacted into law, and that copies 
of this resolution, duly signed by his Honor, the 
Mayor, be forwarded to his Excellency, the 
Governor' of this State; the Honorable J. 
Charles Linthicum, Member of Congress, and 
the Honorable, the Secretary of War of the 
Tnited States. 

Approved February 7, 1924.
