Detail process for finding out the bar bending schedule of column and calculate its weight
This construction video tutorial shows in detail how to find out bar bending schedule of column as well as compute its weight.
As for example, a sample column is taken here with the following dimensions :-
- The length of the footing located at bottom is 1550 mm
- The length of the footing above it upto plinth beam is 700 mm
- The length of the footing above it upto plinth beam is 250 mm
- The length of the slab from plinth beam is 3000 mm or 3 meter or 10 feet
- The length of the slab above it is 180 mm
- The thickness of the steel that is used in the slab is 12 mm for main bar and distribution bar
- The thickness of the steel that is utilized in footing is 12 mm for both main and distribution
- In each column there will be four bars and their diameters are 12 mm
Bar bending belongs to a method of cutting and bending reinforcement steel into different shapes on the basis of the recommendations provided by the structural engineer for different types of structural elements like like Slab, Beam, Coloum, Footing etc.,.
Bar Bending Schedule stands for a list that itemizes bent reinforcement bars applied in any given structural concrete (RCC) element. The list comprises of bar mark, its diameter, length, shape and weight.
Bar bending schedule is very useful for site engineers/home owners to work out the quantities of different diameters of bars applied in a construction, as well as accomplish bar bending at site, and examine the reinforcement work executed by the contractor.
As the cost of the steel is getting higher day by day, bar cuts re-use and reducing bar waste has become indispensable. Reports generation for supervising the development and rebar info communication with fabricator is very important.
