Calculate Cutting Length for Rings… so easy.

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.
