HOW TO CALCULATE STEEL QUANTITY FOR SLAB WITH BAR BENDING SCHEDULE

Hi before going to calculate bar bending schedule for slab you should know to find your slab is whether one-way slab or two-way slab. If not its ok we will guide through this

One Way Slab Ly/Lx > 2
Two Way Slab Ly/Lx < 2

In one-way slab, Main bars are provided in shorter direction (Cranked bars) and distribution bars are provided in Longer direction (Straight bars).

in Two-way slab Main bars (cranked bars) are provided in both directions.

 

 

Distribution bars: These bars are straight bars.

Main bars: These bars are cranked bars. Main bars are cranked at an angle of 45 Degree with the length of 0.42D

therefore,

D = Depth of Slab – Top cover – Bottom cover

Extra Bars: The extra bar is provided at the bottom of Cranked bars to maintain the framework of the slab. The length of Extra bar is L/4

 

 

 

 

OK We Think You Got A Clear Picture Of Slab Reinforcements Now Take Look Of This Detailing 

 

 

 

Let We Work On This Detailing So You Can Get Clear Picture

GIVEN DATA FOR FLOOR SLAB 1

SIZE OF FLOOR SLAB 1

 

Length= 2950mm

Breadth= 6000mm

Beam size = 225x300mm

Main bars are 12 mm in diameter @ 150 mm centre to centre spacing

Distribution bars are 8 mm in diameter @ 150 mm centre to centre spacing. (Main Bar & Distribution Bar Difference)

Top and Bottom Clear Cover is 25 mm

Thickness of Slab – 150 mm

Therefore, To Find Its One Way Or Two Way Slab

Lx = 2950mm (shorter span)

Ly = 6000mm (Larger span)

Ly/Lx= 6000/2950 = 2.033

One Way Slab Ly/Lx > 2

Hence its one-way slab

So, We need to find

  • Main bar for shorter span
  • Distribution bar for longer span
  • Top bar for main rod on both sides for critical structure

 

LCETED TRIVIA

  1. Main reinforcement bar is normally used at the bottom of the slab.

Distribution bars are placed on the top of the main bar.

  1. Main bar is used in shorter direction but distribution bar is used in longer span.
  2. Higher dimension bar is used as main reinforcement bar.

Lower dimension bar is used as distribution bars.

  1. Main reinforcement bar is used to transfer the bending moment to beams.

Distribution bars are used to resist the shear stress, and cracks developed at the top of the slab

STEP 1

Find Cutting Length Of Main Bars For Floor Slab 1

 

 

Length Of Main Bars = (depth of beam/2) + (width of beam/2) + (1 x inclined length) – (45° bend x 2)  + length of  shorter span + width of beam + (0.3 x intermediate slab length)

Inclined length = 0.42D

D = Slab thickness – 2 side clear cover (top cover + bottom cover)

D = 150 – (2 x 25) = 100mm

Inclined length = 0.42 x 100 = 42mm

45° bend = 1d

d = diameter of bar

45° bend = 1 x 12 = 12mm

Intermediate slab

L = 3100mm

Therefore,

Length Of Main Bars = (300/2) + (225/2) + (1 x 42) – (12 x 2)  + 2950 + 300 + (0.3 x 3100) = 4730.5

Cutting length Of Main Bars for floor slab 1= 4.8m

STEP 2 

No Of Bars Required For Cutting Main Bars

No of bars = (opp length/spacing) + 1

Opposite length of bar = 6000

Spacing = 150mm c/c as per given details

= (6000/150) + 1

No of bars = 41 nos

STEP 3

Total Length Of Bar Required For Main Bars Of Floor Slab 1

= no of bar x total length of bar

= 41 x 4.80 = 196.8m = 197m

Total length of bar required for main bars of

Floor Slab 1 =197m of 12mm rod

 

STEP 4

Find Cutting Length Of Distribution Bars For Floor Slab 1

 

 

Length of distribution bars = (breadth of beam/2) + length of longer span + (breadth of beam/2)

Length of distribution bars = (225/2) + 6000 +(225/2) = 6225mm

Length of distribution bars = 6.225m

STEP 5

No Of Bars Required For Cutting Distribution Bars

No of bars = (opp length/spacing) + 1

Opposite length of bar = 2950

Spacing = 150mm c/c as per given details

= (2950/150) + 1

= 20.6666666667 = 21 nos

No of bars = 21nos

 

STEP 6

Total Length Of Bar Required For Distribution Bars Of Floor Slab 1

= No Of Bar X Total Length Of Bar

= 21 x 6.225 = 130.725m

Total length of bar required for distribution bars of Floor Slab 1 = 131m of 8mm rod

STEP 7

 

 

Top Bar (Extra): Top Bars Are Provided At The Top Of Main Bar As Critical Length (L/4) Area

Number of top bars = (Lx/4) / spacing + 1

Number of top bars = ((2950/4) / 150) + 1 =5.91 = 6 nos of bars x 2 sides = 12 nos

Number of top bars = 12 nos of bars

STEP  8

Total Length Of Bar Required For Top Bars Of Floor Slab 1

Length of top bars = Length of Distribution Bars

Cutting Length Of top Bars = 6.225m

Total length of top bars = 6.225 x 10 = 27.25m

Total length of top bars of Floor Slab 1= 63 m of 8mm rod

GIVEN DATA FOR FLOOR SLAB 2

SIZE OF FLOOR SLAB 1

Length= 3100mm

Breadth= 6000mm

Therefore,

Lx shorter span = 3100mm

Ly larger span = 6000mm

Beam size = 225x300mm

Main bars are 12 mm in diameter @ 150 mm centre to centre spacing

Distribution bars are 8 mm in diameter @ 150 mm centre to centre spacing. (Main Bar & Distribution Bar Difference)

Top and Bottom Clear Cover is 25 mm

Consider Development length as 40 d

Thickness of Slab – 150 mm

  2. How To Calculate The Self Weight Of Column & Beam

Therefore, To Find Its One Way Or Two Way Slab

Lx = 3100mm (shorter span)

Ly = 6000mm (Larger span)

Ly/Lx= 6000/3100 = 1.93

Two Way Slab

Ly/Lx < 2

Hence its Two-way slab

So, We need to find

  • Main bar for shorter span
  • Main bar for longer span
  • Top bar for main rod on both sides for critical structure

 

STEP 1

Find Cutting Length Of Main Bars For Floor Slab 2 (A2-B2 direction)

 

 

Length Of Main Bars (A2-B2) = (depth of beam/2) + (width of beam/2) + (1 x inclined length) – (45° bend x 2)  + length of span + width of beam + (0.3 x intermediate slab length)

Inclined length = 0.42D

D = Slab thickness – 2 side clear cover (top cover + bottom cover)

D = 150 – (2 x 25) = 100mm

Inclined length = 0.42 x 100 = 42mm

45° bend = 1d

d = diameter of bar

45° bend = 1 x 12 = 12mm

Intermediate slab

L = 3000mm

 

Therefore,

Length Of Main Bars (A2-B2) = (300/2) + (225/2) + (1 x 42) – (12 x 2)  + 3100 + 300 + (0.3 x 3000) = 4580.5

Cutting length Of Main Bars for floor slab 2= 4.6m

STEP 2 

No Of Bars Required For Cutting Main Bars

No of bars = (opp length/spacing) + 1

Opposite length of bar = 6000

Spacing = 150mm c/c as per given details

= (6000/150) + 1

No of bars = 41 nos

STEP 3

Total Length Of Bar Required For Main Bars Of Floor Slab 2

= no of bar x total length of bar

= 41 x 4.6= 188.6m = 190m

Total length of bar required for main bars of

Floor Slab 2 =190m of 12mm rod

STEP 4

Find Cutting Length Of Main Bars For Floor Slab 2 (C2-D2 direction)

 

 

Length Of Main Bars (C2-D2) = (depth of beam/2) + (width of beam/2) + (1 x inclined length) – (45° bend x 2) + length of span + (width of beam/2)

Inclined length = 0.42D

D = Slab thickness – 2 side clear cover (top cover + bottom cover)

D = 150 – (2 x 25) = 100mm

Inclined length = 0.42 x 100 = 42mm

45° bend = 1d

d = diameter of bar

45° bend = 1 x 12 = 12mm

Intermediate slab

L = 3000mm

 

Therefore,

Length Of Main Bars (C2-D2) = (300/2) + (225/2) + (1 x 42) – (12 x 2)  + 6000 + (225/2) = 6393m

Cutting length Of Main Bars for floor slab 2= 6.4m

No Of Bars Required For Cutting Main Bars

No of bars = (opp length/spacing) + 1

Opposite length of bar = 3100

Spacing = 150mm c/c as per given details

= (3100/150) + 1

No of bars = 21.6666666667 = 22

STEP 6

Total Length Of Bar Required For Main Bars Of Floor Slab 2

= no of bar x total length of bar

= 22 x 6.4= 140.8m = 141m

Total Length Of Bar Required For Main Bars Of

Floor Slab 2 =141m Of 12mm Rod

 

STEP 7

Top Bar (Extra) (A2-B2): Top Bars Are Provided At The Top Of Main Bar As Critical Length (L/4) Area

Number of top bars = (Ly/4) / spacing + 1

Number of top bars = ((6000/4) / 150) + 1 = 11 nos of bars x 2 sides = 22 nos

Number of top bars = 22 nos of bars

 

 

Top Bar (Extra) (C2-D2): Top Bars Are Provided At The Top Of Main Bar As Critical Length (L/4) Area

Number of top bars = (Lx/4) / spacing + 1

Number of top bars = ((3100/4) / 150) + 1 =6.16 = 7 nos of bars x 2 sides = 14 nos

Number of top bars = 14 nos of bars

 

STEP  8

Total Length Of Bar Required For Top Bars Of Floor Slab 2 (A2-B2)

Length of top bars = Length of Opposite Bars (C2-D2)

Cutting Length Of top Bars = 3.325m

Total length of top bars = 3.325 x 14 = 46.55m

Total length of top bars of Floor Slab 2= 47 m of 8mm rod

Total Length Of Bar Required For Top Bars Of Floor Slab 2 (C2-D2)

Length of top bars = Length of Opposite Bars (A2-B2)

Cutting Length Of top Bars = 6.225m

Total length of top bars = 6.225 x 14 = 87.15m

 

Total length of top bars of Floor Slab 1= 88m of 8mm rod
