The improve the tensile strength we used reinforcement with concrete. There are main two types
of reinforcement used for concrete. Hot rolled plain and round mild steel
, Hot rolled deformed bar and cold worked bar are use as a reinforcement today.
In our site we used Y-10,Y-12,Y-16,Y-20,Y-25 bars for columns , footings and other
structural works.
Bar Notation
20-Y-10-15 @150 C/C
Distance center-center
Bar mark
Diameter of Bar
Type of Bar
Number if Bars
Lap Length
Fixing time of the steel bars, bar length is not enough to solve that we have to lap another steel
bar because load should be transfer to other bar. This process can be nominated as Lap length
In our site we use 42D as a lap length. “D” mean Diameter of the bar
Spaces And Cover Blocks
The bars shall be kept in position by using spaces

Foundations - 50mm Columns - 25mm Beams bottom - 25mm Bar Schedule : . Which is prepared from 1:3 cement sand mixture. According to the structure the clear cover varies. CUTTING AND BINDING PRACTICE. There should be a cover for the steel bars. Clear cover : To avoid reinforcement open to the air. i) Cut/bend re-bar shall be collated with cutting/ bending schedule by the officer in charge at bar bending yard. Cutting/ Bending : Cutting/bending shall be carried out at bar bending yard as per cutting/bending schedule.1 BENDING. ii) Cut/bend re-bars after checking shall be tagged for easy identification at site. This clear cover is also maintained to protect the reinforcement of the structure from the heat of the fire any accident will occur.4. For this purpose we made cover blocks.

Schedule Information : A bar schedule shall contain the following information in the sequence below. Schedule information is given in below.the same letter should be entered ) m Title block .Bar schedule is a document used to specify the and identify the reinforcing bars. starting A. a Member identification of the structural member in the bar is located b Bar mark (unique reference of the bar ) c Type of steel a single letter will suffices if clearly defined the columns for type of steel ad size can be combined) d Size (normal diameter ) of the bar .. when ever a line is amended and the schedule re-used .in millimeters e Length in each bar .B..
