Determining the location of the ties requires consideration of two factors when comparing

stud spacing and tie-wire spacing:

If the maximum tie-wire spacing is less than the maximum stud spacing, reduce the

maximum stud spacing to equal the maximum tie-wire spacing and install the tie at

the intersections of the studs and wales or get a stronger wire.

If the maximum tie-wire spacing is greater than or equal to the maximum stud

spacing, use the size for the maximum stud spacing and install the tie at the

intersections of the studs and wales.

EXAMPLE:

Determine where the ties will be made if the--

Maximum stud spacing is 28 inches.

Maximum tie-wire spacing is 24 inches.

Reduce the stud spacing to 24 inches, and install the tie at the intersections of the studs and

wales.

covered in step 14. The solution to this problem is found at the end of the lesson. Determine

where the ties will be made if the--

Maximum stud spacing is 14 inches.

Maximum tie-wire spacing is 20 inches.

side of a form by dividing the form length by the maximum stud spacing (step 7 or step 14 if

the stud spacing has been reduced). Add 1 to this number. If the answer contains a decimal,

round up to the next whole number. The first and last studs must be placed at the ends of the

form, even though the spacing between the last two studs may be less than the maximum

allowable spacing. Compute as follows:
