The Load Stress of a Section can be reduced by-

  1. By decreasing the lever arm
  2. Increasing the total perimeter of bars
  3. Replacing larger bars with a greater number of small bars
  4. Replacing smaller bars with a greater number of larger bars

Answer: C. Replacing larger bars with a greater number of small bars.

The Load Stress of a Section can be reduced by replacing larger bars with a greater number of small bars

Solution

The Load Stress of a Section can be reduced by replacing larger bars with a greater number of small bars, this is done to get a high bond between the bar and the concrete.

A single bar of larger diameter has less surface area compared to more number of smaller diameter bars, the increased surface area will help in the increased bonding between the concrete and the steel, and this distribution of more number of smaller diameter bars will reduce the cracking tendency of the concrete.
