What is Bar Bending Schedule?

In Civil Engineering Bar Bending Schedule is the important part of Estimation chart. In
the Bar Bending schedule provides the reinforcement (steel) calculation for
reinforcement of concrete column , beam and slab cutting length and also use to find
the types of bends of length which we provide in steel structures.

BBS is used in finding cutting length of steel and total weight of steel per unit area. and
we can make the bar bending schedule in Ms office Excel software.

Bar Bending Schedule Formulas

1. Hook Length:-

The hook length is commonly provided for stirrups

Hook Length = 9D [D is Diameter of the Bar]

Hook
Length | Bar Bending Schedule
Total Length of stirrup = Total length of Bar + 2 x Hook Length (Two hooks)

Total Length = L+2(9D)

Therefore Total length = L+18D (D is Diameter of bar)

2. Length of Straight Bar with Bends:-


Total Length = Length of Straight Portion + 2(Hook Length)

3. Additional Length for Bent up or Crank Bar with Bends:-

The additional length (la) that is introduced in the simple, straight end-to-end length of
a reinforcement bar due to being bent up at (Theta) say 30o to 60o, but it is generally
45o = l1 – l2 = la

Where,

Fig: Hooks and bends in Reinforcement


Giving different values to respectively), we get different values of
la, as tabulated below:
Figure 2 presents the procedure to arrive at the length of hooks and the total length of
a given steel reinforcement.

For 45 Deg | Crank length is provided in Slab Shear stress is maximum at supports in
Slab. So, to resist this stress we usually crank the bars at the ends of supports in slab.

Crank bar is bent up at an angle of 45 degree with the length of 0.42D

D = Depth of Slab-Top Cover-Bottom cover

4. Length for Extra Bars:-

Now a days Extra bar is also provided under every crank bar. To keep crank bar in
position. (Refer above image for clear idea).
5. Bend Hook Length Formula for Column:-

Bend Length is usually provided in columns at ends to tie the columns to the footings.

Bend Length = 16D [D is Diameter of the Bar]

6. Overlap Length / Lap Length in Reinforcement (Bar Bending


Schedule) :-

Suppose the length of building is 20 m. The standard length of Rebar is 12m. We have
to join two Re-bars for the total length of building. In order to Join the two bars
(overlap). Overlap length is adopted.

Overlap Length for compression members = 40D

Overlap Length for tension members = 50D

[D is the Diameter of the bar]

7. Hook’s Length Formula for Stirrups:-

Hook’s Length for Stirrups are mostly equal to 10d, Where d is dia of bar.

Rectangular Stirrups | Length of Stirrups = 2A + 2B + (2 x 10d)

Cutting Length of Rectangular Stirrups | Bar Bending


Schedule
Triangular Stirrups | Length of Stirrups = 3H + (2 x 10d)

Cutting Length of Triangular


Stirrups | Bar Bending Schedule
Circular Stirrups | Length of Stirrups = (3.142 x Dia of Steel Ring) + (2 x 10d)

Cutting Length of Circular Stirrups | Bar Bending Schedule


Diamond Stirrups | Length of Stirrups = 4H + (2 x 10d)

Cutting Length of Diamond


Stirrups | Bar Bending Schedule
Spiral Stirrups | Length of Stirrups = Length of Spiral or Helix Bar = n x (C2 + P2)^0.5

where,

 n = No. of Pitches = n = H/p + 1


 C = 3.142 x d
 P = Pitch or Spacing between spirals
