# How to find Cutting length: Diamond rings

Good afternoon ,

Good evening Friends ,

We are connecting after a long time. Right ?

Let us take the query asked by one of the intelligent readers :

First part of the query we have already addressed in the following post :

How to find cutting length of circular rings.

Now let us take care of the second part.

Diagonal stirrups or Diamond stirrups.

To explain the basic method , let me take one solved example :

let us see the solution now :

Hope this is quite clear .

# HOW TO FIND CUTTING LENGTH OF CIRCULAR RINGS ?

Dear Friends ,

Good evening !

This is a great query from our friend :

Let us handle the first part of the query in this article.

Here is an example on a circular pile which shall demonstrate the case.

Hope this is quite clear now.

# 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.

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 :

In case you would like to have a formula that can be used for any cover , any hook length , this is it :
