The following picture is taken at a construction site and it shows the beam reinforcement. In any beam reinforcement, two things should always be kept in mind. These are Proper Lap and Ld

In case these are not properly provided as per the design the entire beam purpose is lost and beam loses its required strength. It has been found that if the beam is not properly reinforced, the entire structure is bound to collapse

Hi Sir,

Thanks for sharing your knowledge. Would be greatful if you provide the thumb rule for determining the dry material

contents in RCC & brick work…

Thanks in advance

sir, pls i want 2 know d meaning of 56-Y1209- 250 T in slab design and also the meaning of 11-R1008- 300 in beam design… Thanks sir.

pls let us know to calculet the qty of cement,steel,sand and meatal by thumbrule.thanking you.

Respected sir

Please suges me the thumb rule for designing column beam and slab.thanks

Respected sir

please suggest curtail bar in beam bottom.

hello sir…

Please let me know ,how to retrieve the no of beams and no of rooms and etc…from the civil engineering images..how to extract the values from civil images…. how to calculate the required quantity of materials from the images…please help me..is there any idea…

sir i want to know bar bending schedule in the detail how to measure the quality of the slab and steel respectively thanks

dear sir i want to know how to calculate the ld lenght of steel

For steel calculation in beam,we are given reinf0rcement in % i.e 3% so calculate the v0lume of 15 ft l0ng beam having breadth and depth 1 ft n 1.5 ft. The v0lume c0mes 22.5 cft. N0w quntity of steel wil be= 22.5 x 3 x 490 / 100 x 2204= 0.15 ton.

Mass=Density X Volume

Mass=490 lbs/cft X 22.5cft =11025 lbs

(to convert lbs=kg)

Mass= 11025 X 0.4536 = 5000kg

(to convert kg=large ton)

Mass= 5000/1000= 5 TON

(assumed i.e 3% weight of steel)

Mass= 5 x 3/100 = 0.15 TON
