# Calculate Center To Center Distance Between The Bars In Column,Beam And slab

### Calculate Center To Center Distance Between The Bars In Column – Beam And slab

Let us calculate the C / C distance between the reinforcement bars for the column section drawing as shown below.

### Given dataÂ :

Column width = 480mm.

Column depth = 300mm.

Clear cover = 40mm.

Corner rebar diameter = 16mm.

Mid rebar diameter = 12mm.

No. of rebars = 10nos.

Stirrup bar diameter = 8mm.

Now, we will find out the spacing of the bars in both directions, i.e. the value ofÂ x & yÂ as shown in the drawing.

First, we will calculateÂ yÂ where,

y = [column width – {(2nos.Ã— cover) +( 2nos.Ã— dia. of stirrup bar ) +(2nos.Ã—1/2 dia. of corner bar)}]Â Ã·[ no. of bars in width side -1]

= [ 480mm – {( 2nos. Ã— 40mm ) + ( 2nos. Ã— 8mm ) + ( 2nos. Ã— 1/2 Ã— 16mm )}] Ã· [4 -1]

=Â  [ 480mm – { 80mm + 16mm + 16mm }] Ã· 3

= [ 480mm – 112mm ] Ã· 3

= 368mm Ã· 3

xÂ = [column depth – {(2nos.Ã— cover) +( 2nos.Ã— dia. of stirrup bar ) +(2nos.Ã—1/2 dia. of corner bar)}]Â Ã·[ no. of bars in depth side -1]

= [ 300mm – {( 2nos. Ã— 40mm ) + ( 2nos. Ã— 8mm ) + ( 2nos. Ã— 1/2 Ã— 16mm )}] Ã· [3 -1]

=Â  [ 300mm – { 80mm + 16mm + 16mm }] Ã· 2

= [ 300mm – 112mm ] Ã· 2

= 188mm Ã· 2

### =Â 94mm.

The center-to-center distance of bars in the column isÂ y = 122.66mm. & x = 94mm.

### Note:

1. By using this method, you can calculate the center-to-center distance between all types of structural members.

2. The center-to-center distance will be the same irrespective of the diameter of bars.
