(b) Bar ‘shape’ , e.g. straight, bent or hooked; curved; links, stirrups and spacers. 2. Fabric (mesh) reinforcement should be described separately by steel type, fabric type and area, divided up according to 1(a) and 1(b) above. Methods of Reinforcement Quantity Estimation There are different methods for estimating the quantities of reinforcement ;, three methods of varying accuracy are: Method-1 for Reinforcement Estimation The simplest method is based on the type of structure and the volume of the reinforced concrete elements. Typical values are, for example: Warehouses and similarly loaded and proportioned structures: 1 tonne of reinforcement per 105m Offices, shops, hotels: 1 tonne per 13.5m Residential, schools: 1 tonne per 15.05m However, while this method is a useful check on the total estimated quantity it is the least accurate, and it requires considerable experience to break the tonnage down to Standard Method of Measurement requirements.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
