Concrete columns reinforced with spiral reinforcement can withstand more loads than the tied columns. This phenomenon happens because when load eccentricities are small, spirally reinforced columns show greater toughness, greater ductility than the columns with ties.

tied and spiral column

Therefore, it is expected from civil engineering professionals to use spiral reinforcement instead of ties whenever possible in reinforced Concrete columns.
