Question
Respected sir,
what is the minimum reinforcement criteria in RCC hollow shaft. I am designing a Dumbbell shaped OHWT. Please refer a code provision also

Answer
Dear Asad

the criteria is almost the same as for regular members because usually you must disregard the member being hallow for minimum reinforcement. But the final decision is up to the engineer according the design she/he is performing.
