How to calculate cutting length of circular stirrups,Cutting length of circular stirrups

in this topic we know about how to calculate cutting length of circular stirrups. Another word stirrups is also known as ring or shear reinforcement. It is closed loop of reinforcements used to hold the main reinforcement in RCC structure like column and beam.

The circular Ring used in column provide lateral support to the the main bar against buckling it is used at proper interval to beam and column to prevent them from buckling. Also they protect RCC structure from collapsing during seismic activity like earthquake. It is used to resist lateral shear stress and diagonal tension stress in RCC structure and provide stability to the reinforcement of Steel bar.

let us discuss about how to calculate cutting length of circular stirrups.

## Cutting length of circular stirrups

It is total length of circular closed ring having hook at one reinforcement used in column. suppose we have given following

Diameter of column = 800 mm

Clear cover = 40 mm

Dia of stirrups=8mm

Dia of steel in column=16mm

When we use 10 mm and 12 mm die of Steel bar in column we have clear cover is equal to 25 mm and when we use more than 12 mm die of Steel bar in column we have clear cover is equal to 40 mm.

Cutting length = circumference of circular ring + hook length – bend elongation

1) first we calculate circumference of stirrups

Circumference= 2 πr

We have given diameter of circular column

D=800 mm.

Diameter of stirrups= 800_2Cover_2×4(center to center half dia of stirrups at both sides

D of stirrups=800_(2×40)_(2×4) mm

D of stirrups=800_80_8 mm

D of stirrups=712mm

Radius of stirrups r= D of stirrups/2

Circumference= 2πr

Circumference=2×3.14×356 mm

Circumference of stirrups =2235.68 mm

### calculation of hook length of  circular stirrups

In circular ring it has two hook length , minimum size of hook length is equal to 75 mm or 10d where d is dia of bar

Hook length = 10d ,but in circular ring it has two hook

hook length = 2×10d

Hook length = 2×10×8=160mm

### bend elongation calculation of circular stirrup

In closed circular ring reinforcement we have two bend at 135 degrees.

● bend angle 45° = 1d
● bend angle 90° = 2d
● bend angle 135°= 3d

Bend elongation = 2bend at 135°

Bend = (2×3d)

Bend elongation = 2×3×8 = 48 mm

Cutting length = circumference of ring + hook length – bend elongation

Cutting L = 2235.68+160_48 mm

Cutting length =2395.68 mm _48mm

Cutting length=2347.68mm

Hence cutting length of circulation stirrups
