## Variation among development bars and over lapping length in steel bars

This construction video focuses on the variations among development length Ld and over lapping length in steel bars which are applied in construction site. Development Length plays an important role in structural design. This type of problem is often found in Civil Engineering Exam. The students often mess up dia bar (represented as db) with […]

## Some useful construction tips to work out the over-lapping length of steel bars in slab, column and beam

This construction video tutorial will explain the various formulas which are used in slab, beam, column in the job site for over-lapping steel bars. Here, there are two zones for BIM – Compression zone and Tensile zone. The formulas are different for both the zones. Overlap length in columns, beams and slabs denotes the distance […]

## How to calculate weight of steel

Steel refers to an alloy of iron and other elements, mainly carbon, that is extensively applied in construction and other applications due to its extreme tensile strength and marginal cost. The carbon content of steel varies from 0.002% and 2.1% by weight for plain iron–carbon alloys. Variations in values are based on alloying elements like […]

## Brief demonstration on steel overlapping in Beam & Column

his construction video demonstrates the detailed process for steel overlapping in beam and column. In beam overlapping, one steel is used with other. Here, overlapping is calculated with 40 D for beam and 24 D for column. D denotes the dia of the steel bars which are utilized in a beam. The dia of beam […]

## Learn The Process Of Estimating The Quantity Of Steel Or Reinforcement For A Beam Using Microsoft Excel

One of the most time-consuming and dreary tasks is to produce and preserve bar bending schedule data at construction sites. Generating lists of reinforcement steel bars with size, number of bars, cutting length, weight of steel and a sketch representing the shape of the bar to be bent with all dimensions and bend angle is […]

## Laping lenght for Steel Bar in RCC

When the smaller dia bar is lapped with the larger dia bar, lap length or development length should be calculated based on the diameter of smaller dia bar. Let’s take an example for this case, There is a continuous beam which has two members. First member has a longitudinal bar of 25 dia, and second […]

## REINFORCEMENT STEEL SPECIFICATIONS

Rebar (short for reinforcing bar), also known as reinforcing steel, reinforcement steel, is a steel bar or mesh of steel wires used as a tension device in reinforced concrete and reinforced masonry structures to strengthen and hold the concrete in tension. REBAR CHART. * Bar numbers are based on the number of 1/8 inches included […]

## WHY DO WE USE STEEL IN CONSTRUCTION AND NOT OTHER METALS ?

​WHY DO WE PROVIDE STEEL IN CONSTRUCTION : RCC (Reinforced Cement Concrete) is like a marriage. Both concrete and steel (i.e. rebar) need each others during structural elements are designed to withstand the load. As we knows, concrete is formed by the mixture of Portland cement, aggregates(fine and course) & water. And this results in […]
