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 […]

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 […]
