# 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 .

# Bar Bending Schedule for a RCC Beam

Hello Friends ,

Can you calculate the no of stirrups in this beam ?

Here is the actual example for you !

How many rings you have calculated in the entire beam ?

Oh.

You need a solution ?

Fine. Here is the solution :

Thank you so much

# Examples of Rebars for you

Hello Friends ,

Good Morning !

You must have seen a RCC beam where the rings are not at uniform spacing.

In the middle span [ L/2 ] , the rings are at a normal spacing. But in the end spans , the spacing is reduced. This article shows how to calculate the no of rings in such a case. In a simple way. Read on ….

Let us also see, how is the strength in ribbed bar is exactly double from the strength in Mild steel ( Round ) bars.

# 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.
