## 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 […]

## 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 […]

## Calculate Steel Reinforcement and its quantity in Slab, Beams, Columns and Footing

RCC drawings so that you can find out the following values from the drawing : Length of the element : Cross section: No of bars Type of bars Spacing between the bars. Lap length ( horizontal/vertical) Development length Covers for footing/column/beam/slab. 2. Calculate the cutting length of the bars. ( total length – covers on […]
