How To Make Bar Bending Schedule Of Column

This construction video tutorial to learn the detailed process how to make bar bending schedule (BBS) of column. Details process the cutting length of stirrups below: a = 600-(2×44) = 512mm b = 300-(2×44) = 212mm Cutting length = (2xa)+(2xb)+(2x10xd)-(5x2xd) – d= dia of strips = 8mm = (2×512)+(2×212)+(2x10x8)-(5x2x8) = 1528 mm or 1.528 mm […]
