There is insufficient distance to accommodate such an anchorage length beyond the centre-line of the column.
If U-bars or loops are provided, the minimum internal diameter of the bend needs to satisfy the requirement for curved bars. This is an indirect check on the crushing of the concrete inside the bend and the tabulated value could be NAD multiplied by A^JA%prov. Table 8
Minimum internal diameter of bend = 130 = 208 mm
Note that it is necessary to check that sufficient space is available in the final detailing.
At support B a straight anchorage will be sufficient to meet both CIRIA Guide 2 and EC2 requirements.
