# CRANKED BAR ? SURE….

This is another solved example for the BENT UP bars.

You must have read the earlier post on bent up bars.

Cranked Bars

There was yet another post on Bent up bars ;

Bent up bars

In the following article , you shall find a simplified formula for calculating the cutting length of the bent up bars.

Let us also revise some basic concepts about CURTAIL BARS and EOS bars.

Thank You Sir,But i have Some Doubts in Continous Slab….
1) in terminate end (one side)Crank length is L/4,What is the other side Crank length of Continous slab

Great question.
Usual practice is to continue the cranked bar upto a distance of L/5 in the other span.
If there are two spans L1 and L2.
The bent up bar from L1 shall extend in the L2 span over the continuous support for a distance of L1/5.
Similarly, the bent up bar from L2 shall extend in the L1 span over the continuous support for a distance of L2/5.

Hope its clear.
May be we can post an example of this soon.

Sir,In a Continous slab,the Crank length of alternate bar(1) in the simply supported end(terminate) is L/4 and Crank length of alternate bar (2) in the continous Support (above mentioned) is L/5..is this correct or not

1. Santosh Kulkarni says:

This is true.
In case of continuous slab , the length of the bar shall be calculated as L/4+BEAM WIDTH +L/5.
That bar shall extend by L/5 in the other span.
Hope this is clear now ?
