## 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 slabÂ orÂ two-way slab.Â If not itsÂ okÂ we will guide through this

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

### therefore,

D = Depth of Slab – Top cover â€“ Bottom cover

### SIZE OF FLOOR SLAB 1

Length= 2950mm

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 â€“ 150 mm

### How to Calculate Staircase Concrete & Bar Bending Schedule And Staircase Reinforcement Details

Therefore, To Find ItsÂ One WayÂ OrÂ Two Way Slab

Lx = 2950mm (shorter span)

Ly = 6000mm (Larger span)

Ly/Lx= 6000/2950 = 2.033

 One Way Slab Ly/Lx > 2

Hence itsÂ one-wayÂ slab

So, We need to find

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

### LCETEDÂ 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 OfÂ Main BarsÂ ForÂ Floor Slab 1

### D = Slab thickness â€“ 2 side clear cover (top cover + bottom cover)

D = 150 â€“ (2 x 25) = 100mm

Inclined length = 0.42 x 100 = 42mm

45Â° bend = 1d

d = diameter of bar

45Â° bend = 1 x 12 = 12mm

Intermediate slab

L = 3100mm

### STEP 2Â

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

### STEP 3

Total Length Of Bar Required ForÂ Main BarsÂ OfÂ Floor Slab 1

= no of bar x total length of bar

= 41 x 4.80 = 196.8m = 197m

### STEP 4

Find Cutting Length Of Distribution Bars ForÂ Floor Slab 1

Length of distribution bars =Â (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

### Estimate this Slab (Drawing Included)

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

### STEP 6

Total Length Of Bar Required ForÂ Distribution BarsÂ OfÂ Floor Slab 1

= No Of Bar X Total Length Of Bar

= 21 x 6.225 = 130.725m

### Top Bar (Extra):Â 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 =Â 12 nos

Number of top bars = 12 nos of bars

### STEPÂ  8

Total Length Of Bar Required ForÂ Top BarsÂ OfÂ Floor Slab 1

### Length of top bars = Length of Distribution Bars

Cutting Length Of top Bars =Â 6.225m

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

Length= 3100mm

### 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 â€“ 150 mm

### Therefore, To Find ItsÂ One WayÂ OrÂ Two Way Slab

Lx = 3100mm (shorter span)

Ly = 6000mm (Larger span)

Ly/Lx= 6000/3100 = 1.93

### Hence itsÂ Two-wayÂ slab

So, We need to find

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

### STEP 1

Find Cutting Length OfÂ Main BarsÂ ForÂ Floor Slab 2Â (A2-B2 direction)

### D = Slab thickness â€“ 2 side clear cover (top cover + bottom cover)

D = 150 â€“ (2 x 25) = 100mm

Inclined length = 0.42 x 100 = 42mm

### 45Â° bend = 1d

d = diameter of bar

45Â° bend = 1 x 12 = 12mm

L = 3000mm

### Therefore,

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

### STEP 2Â

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

### STEP 3

Total Length Of Bar Required ForÂ Main BarsÂ OfÂ Floor Slab 2

= no of bar x total length of bar

= 41 x 4.6= 188.6m = 190m

### STEP 4

Find Cutting Length OfÂ Main BarsÂ ForÂ Floor Slab 2Â (C2-D2 direction)

### D = Slab thickness â€“ 2 side clear cover (top cover + bottom cover)

D = 150 â€“ (2 x 25) = 100mm

Inclined length = 0.42 x 100 = 42mm

### 45Â° bend = 1d

d = diameter of bar

45Â° bend = 1 x 12 = 12mm

L = 3000mm

### Therefore,

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

### STEP 5 eÂ

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

### STEP 6

Total Length Of Bar Required ForÂ Main BarsÂ OfÂ Floor Slab 2

= no of bar x total length of bar

= 22 x 6.4= 140.8m = 141m

### Top Bar (Extra)Â (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

### Top Bar (Extra)Â (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

### STEPÂ  8

Total Length OfÂ Bar Required ForÂ Top BarsÂ OfÂ Floor Slab 2Â (A2-B2)

### Length of top bars = Length of Opposite BarsÂ (C2-D2)

Cutting Length Of top Bars =Â 3.325m

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

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

Total Length Of Bar Required ForÂ Top BarsÂ OfÂ Floor Slab 2Â (C2-D2)

### Length of top bars = Length of Opposite BarsÂ (A2-B2)

Cutting Length Of top Bars =Â 6.225m

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

### Checklist For R.C.C Slab & Beams
