Constructing BBS of Column

Directions for constructing a bar bending schedule (BBS) of column are explained in this post. Specifically, it provides a calculation for the reinforced concrete beam. Under the calculations, there are the details about the type and length of bend, cutting length. For this reason, all the formulas and the mathematical calculations that you will need […]

Reinforcement Columns

Consider a column with cross section 300×300. This is the smallest allowable column section when seismic behavior is required. It is reinforced with 4 longitudinal bars and one stirrup. The cross section described is not generally used but it was chosen in this introductory paragraph for training purposes. The column has a length of 2.70 […]

Bridge Cost Estimate Worksheet

  The Preliminary Cost Estimate Worksheet should be used to estimate the bridge cost for new and replacement bridge projects. The worksheet is based on the bridge shoulder break methodology. This methodology was established for use early in a project when bridge particulars, such as abutment heights and locations, are not known. The costs and […]

Column Design with Excel

Column Design with Excel RCC Column A column is a very important component in a structure. It is like the legs on which a structure stands. It is designed to resist axial and lateral forces and transfer them safely to the footings in the ground. Columns support floors in a structure. Slabs and beams transfer […]
