Hi dear friends ,

Good afternoon.

A hearty Welcome to the recently joined followers.

We are now a 585 strong construction team .

Just think , together we can undertake and successfully complete any multi crore project.

By the way , ” Your Question bank ” has been released to many followers on request.

Those who have the desire to obtain a copy , kindly refer to this post :

HOW TO USE THE QUESTION BANK ?:

Today you shall understand the theory and practice behind the stirrups.

Stirrups are also called Links or Rings or Transverse Reinforcement.

These are used for Beams and Columns.

In a Beam , the stirrups are vertical and in a column , these are horizontal.

Each ring has a HOOK at one of the corners which keeps the ring in its shape. The ring shall open if this hook is not given.

Look at this chart to understand about the calculations of the hook length :

look at this detail usually given in a RCC drawing :

Now let us solve an example and find out the cutting length for LINKS for a column

Now let us  take another example :

Hope you are getting the whole picture :

Now try your practice with this example.

Now let us take a complete example :

Now , let us see what all we need to find out :

here is the solution :

Now it is the right time to share with you a simple short cut :
