In this post, we are going to explain how to calculate steel quantity for the slab? For both one way and two way slab with an example.

Estimation
## Bar Bending Shape Codes

Shape codes are the building stones of a perfect bar bending schedule. When calculating the reinforcement detailing for different members for a building, taking account of small bent ups and other angle detailing will make the difference of effective and economic BBS.

Basics
## Why Crank Rod is Provided in the Slab?

You may notice difference shape of bent up bars and cranks are provided in the slab and other structural members. Do you know the reason? Let us explain.

Construction Methods
## Difference between Main Bars and Distribution Bars in Slab

When we look at any reinforcement detailing, we able to see there may be two sizes of bars used in the slab. We know that is main reinforcement bar and distribution reinforcement bar. But wait there is more than just the name.

Basics
## Difference between One way slab and Two way slab

We all know that (L/B) ratio to find the given slab is one way slab or two way slab. It’s not that critical to find that. Just understanding the basics will do the magic.

Quick Tip
## What is the difference between footing and foundation?

We have already discussed types of foundation and their basics. Now it’s time for the very very basic question that we all have in mind what is really footing and foundation?

Basics
## Types of Foundation – Comprehensive Guide with Detailed Drawings

Foundation is the most important element of any construction but least understand mechanism. Making minor mistakes causes the whole structure collapse. But the reality is very simple if you read this guide.

Estimation
## How to Calculate Circular Slab Reinforcement?

Let say you need to calculate the reinforcement for a circular slab of 2 Metre diameter with spacing 200 mm c/c and clear cover as 25 mm. Unlike other RCC members, this one is different since the rod length will differ according to the diameter of the circle.

Construction Methods
## Painting Process for Walls [ Interior, Exterior ], Wood and Metal Surface

Though the painting process is very straightforward, it may be confusing by the number of coats and by the types of paints used for different purposes. In this post, we are going to cover painting process for

Basics
## Difference between Formwork, Shuttering, Centering, and Staging

Difference between Formwork, Shuttering, Centering and Staging. You may interchangeably use these words without knowing the difference between these terms.

Testing Procedure
## Concrete Slump Test – Experiment Procedure

The strength of any building mainly depends on the quality of the materials used. Concrete is a macro content. Even though we have tested its micro contents such as sand, cement, blue metal, and water. The mixing method and proportioning of the micro-ingredients may affect the strength of the concrete.
