Calculating Quantity Of Steel Bar Placed In Mesh Form In A Circular Slab Or Dome
When steel reinforcement is placed in mesh form in circular concrete slab at base or domes at top in case of over
head service reservoir or any other structure, it is difficult to estimate/measure the total quantity of steel that would be needed
or placed. For the purpose of calculating the total length of the steel bars, at present, the practice is – the length of each bar is
measured and then added up. This is tiresome and time consuming process. I have derived a mathematics formula with the
help of which we can calculate in one line the quantity of total steel that will be needed. This will not only make it easy and
time saving but also avoids any error in making entries and calculations.
