How To Calculate Cutting Length Of Bent Up Bar In Slab
Bent-up bars were considerably used as shear reinforcement in beams and slabs from the first R/C developments in the remote past. Their use was justified by the fact that they permitted improved development of the tensile reinforcement accordingly they acted as shear reinforcement.
In this exclusive tutorial, presenter will explain how to measure cutting length of bent up bar
Things To Remember
- Bent up bar resists the diagonal shear.
- The bent up bar cannot be avoided in the slab. It is compulsory.
- Bent up bar is also familiar as cranked bar or flexural reinforcement.
