**Bar bending schedule Of Circular Column**

## B.B.S. for Circular R.C.C. Column

Hello there, Civil Engineers.

To Prepare

It must be fulfilled. Let's get this started.

**How to Prepare B.B.S. for Circular Column is the title of this article.**To Prepare

**B.B.S.**ready for a column. There are some criteria and assumptions.It must be fulfilled. Let's get this started.

**Forces on Column**

You should be familiar with the regular forces acting on a

**column**.Just take a look at the diagram below.

The Column has fewer moments in the centre and more at the bottom and top, according to the shear force and

**bending moment**diagram.When the bending moment is greatest, never tie a column at the top or bottom; always tie the Column at the centre.

Tie the bars at the site height of 4 to 5 feet.

**The maximum size of the roof should be 11 feet.**- Use less cutting of steel and provide desirable lapping.

- Lap another steel at the same time.

- Overlap the top
**steels**with the bottom steels.

- Between the laps, end to end, spacing should be provided.

**Bar Bending Schedule (B.B.S.) Used by**

On **construction**sites, the following types of people and officials use B.B.S.:

- Quantity Surveyor

- Steel fixer

- Contractor

- Project manager

- Inspectors

- Clerks of construction

All

## Details from the diagram

- The thickness of the slab is 150 mm

- Floor height is 3 m or 3000 mm

- Footing depth is 400 mm

- The development Length is 50d

- The Column has 8 numbers 16 mm dia bars

- Stirrup spacing is 8mm @ 150 mm C/C

- The
**concrete**Cover of the Footing is 40 mm

- The concrete Cover of the slab is 25 mm

**Steps for B.B.S. of Column**

In general, there are five steps to preparing a **column bar bending schedule**, which are as follows:

- Find the length of the Vertical Bar

- Find out lapping

- Cutting Length of Stirrups

- Number of Stirrups

- B.B.S.

## Find the length of the Vertical Bar.

**Length of Vertical bar = Development length (Ld) + footing depth + Floor Heights + Slab Thicknesses + Overlap Length**

**= (12×16) +400+ (3000) +(150) +(50×16)**

**= 4734 mm or 4.73 m**

## Now we find the length of one vertical Bar.

**The total length of the vertical bar = 4732 x the number of steels in the Column.**

**The total length of the vertical bar = 4732 x 8**

**The total length of the vertical bar = 37856 mm**

**Find out lapping**

**length of lapping is 50d**

**Lapping length = 50 x Dia of steel.**

**Length of lapping = 50×20 = 1000 mm.**

**We know that the length of typical steel is 12.25 m or 40 feet.**

**Total Length of Vertical Bar = 37.856 m, more than 12.25 m or 40 feet, so lapping should be provided.**

**The length of lapping is 1000 mm the result will be 37856 + 1 = 38.856 m**

**It is mentioned already in this article, consider the points while lapping the Bar. There is no one right process we can use. Just remember the lines.**

- Don't tie a column at the bottom and also at the top

- Lap at another bar every time

- Overlap top bars with bottom bars always

**Cutting Length of Stirrups**

The cut length of the Stirrup was already discussed in the B.B.S. of beam article.**Length of One Hook = 9d**

**Cutting length of Stirrup = (Perimeter of Stirrup – concrete cover) + Number of Hooks**

**Cutting length of stirrup = (Ï€d-cc) + (2 hooks)**

**Cutting length of stirrup = (3.14×450-25) +(2x9d)**

**= (1413-25) + (2×9×16)**

**= 1388 + 288**

**Cutting length of Stirrup = 1676 mm**

## Number of Stirrups

**Number of stirrups = (Total length of Column ÷ spacing of stirrups) +1**

**Number of stirrups = 4773 ÷ 150 + 1**

**Number of stirrups = 32.82, say 33 numbers**
