What is Y in reinforcement?, BS 4466:1969. R = round mild steel, Y = round area high yield. Rod or steel bar also known as Rebar is short form of reinforcing bar, it is steel Rod or Steel wire provided as tension bar in concrete structure, used in reinforced concrete structure such as column, beam and slab of house construction and it also used in reinforced masonry structure. It is used to increase the tensile strength of concrete structure.

High yield strength rebar or reinforcement bars represented by “y”, as 8mm rebar as y8, 10mm rebar as y10, 12mm rebar as y12, 16mm rebar as y16, 20mm rebar as y20, 25mm rebar as y25, 32mm rebar as y32 and 40mm rebar as y40.

One metric ton is equal to 1000 kilo (kg). reinforcement bars are sold in unit weight kilo per meter, per piece or per ton. Let us first know about length of one piece of rod or steel bar, generally in India full length of one Steel bar or rod which are used in construction are available in 12 meter or approximately 40 feet long.

Rod or steel bars or Reinforcing bar/rebar surface is often deformed with ribs to promote a better bonding with concrete material and reduce the risk of slippage. The most common Rods or Reinforcing bar/ rebar is carbon steel of hot rolled round bar with the deformation patterns, the Steel rebar/ Rod may be also coated with epoxy resin material, design to resist effect of corrosion mostly in saltwater environment.

In this article we know about how many lengths of y8, y10, y12, y16, y20, y25, y32 and y40 rebar makes a ton. To calculate number of rods that makes a ton, divide the 1000 kilo (1 ton) by weight of rebar kg per meter. For example: if unit weight of y12 is 0.888 kg/m, number of lengths of y12 = 1000/ 0.888 = 1126 meters.

To calculate steel rod weight per meter, use the formula D^2L/162 to figure out unit weight or mass of rod in kg per meter, where D is the diameter of steel rod and L is the unit length for 1 meter and numerical figure 162 is the thumb rule number which is derived. For example 12mm steel rod weight per meter = D^2L/162, (12×12×1) ÷ 162 = 0.89kgs/m, hence 0.89 kg is the 12mm steel rod weight per meter.

Steel weight per meter: 6mm weighs 0.22kg per meter, 8mm weighs 0.395kg per meter, 10mm weighs 0.62kg per meter, 12mm weighs 0.89kg per meter, 16mm weighs 1.58kg per meter, 20mm weighs 2.47kg per meter, 25mm weighs 3.86kg per meter, 32mm is 6.32kg per meter and 40mm weighs 9.87 kgs/ meter.

**How many lengths of rebar makes a ton: y10, y12, y16, y8 & y20**

To calculate number of rebar or y bars that makes a ton, divide the 1000 kilo (1 ton) by weight of rebar kg per meter. For example: if unit weight of y12 is 0.888 kg/m, total lengths of y12 in a ton = 1000/ 0.888 = 1126 meters. No. of pieces of y12 rebar in 1 ton = 1126 ÷ 12 = 94 nos.

Total 2531m lengths of y8, 1620m lengths of y10, 1126m lengths of y12, 633m lengths of y16, 405m lengths of y20, 259m lengths of y25, 158m lengths of y32, or 101m lengths of y40 rebar or steel rods makes a ton.

◆ Rod weight per piece: 12mm, 10mm, 8mm, 16mm, 20mm & 25mm steel bar

◆ Rod weight per bundle: 12mm, 10mm, 8mm, 16mm, 20mm & 25mm steel bar

● Rod weight per meter: 12mm, 10mm, 8mm, 16mm, 20mm & 25mm steel bar

**How many lengths of y12 makes a ton**

There are total 1126 meters lengths (94 pieces of 12 metres) of y12 or 12mm reinforcement bar makes a ton. Mathematical calculation: total lengths of y12 in a ton = 1000kg/ unit weight of 12mm Rod in kg/m, 1000kg ÷ 0.889kg = 1126 meters lengths. Number of pieces of 12mm rebar in one ton = 1126 ÷ 12 = 94 pieces. Therefore total 1126 meters lengths or 94 No’s of 12 meters of y12 or 12mm Rod or steel rebar makes 1 ton.

**How many lengths of y8 makes a ton**

There are total 2531 meters lengths (211 pieces of 12 metres) of y8 or 8mm reinforcement bar makes a ton. Mathematical calculation: total lengths of y8 in a ton = 1000kg/ unit weight of 8mm Rod in kg/m, 1000kg ÷ 0.395kg = 2531 meters lengths. Number of pieces of 8mm rebar in one ton = 2531 ÷ 12 = 211 pieces. Therefore total 2531 meters lengths or 211 No’s of 12 meters of y8 or 8mm Rod or steel rebar makes 1 ton.
