Civil site engineers should know the following tips and tricks. Either memorize them or have a list readily available. Minimum thickness of slab is 125mm. Absorption of water should not be over 15 percent. Lapping is unaccepted for the bars that have a diameter of more than 36mm. Longitudinal reinforcement should be not under 0.8% […]

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 […]

For a site engineer, it is essential to work out the cutting length of bars based on the slab dimensions and provided instructions to the bar benders. If the construction work is intended for the small area, the reinforcement detailing can be transferred to the bar benders. They will deal with the cutting length. But […]
