What are the qualities of a good bar bending schedule?

It is always ensured that the person preparing the bar bending schedule must have a solid site execution experience. The rebar designation and cut length must be carefully selected as it will be the defining point for the scrap which will be remained after cutting and bending. 1. The bar bending schedule must ensure to minimize the cutting and bending loss or reinforcement. What are…

What is Shear Force Diagram and Bending Moment Diagram

The algebraic sum of the vertical forces at any section of a beam to the right or left of the section is known as shear force. It is briefly written as S.F. The algebraic sum of the moments of all the forces acting to the right or left of the section is known as bending moment. It is written as B.M. Shear Force and Bending Moment DiagramThe members of rigid frames and beams may…
