Calculate the Bar Bending Schedule For Retaining Wall Bar Bending Schedule For Retaining Wall | BBS For Retaining Wall.

Now we calculate the bar bending schedule for the retaining wall.

### Given data

Length of Retaining wall = 9 m

With of wall = 0.300 m

Height of Wall = 2.500 m

Length of Foundation = 9 m

Width of foundation = 2.150 m

Height of Foundation= 0.400 m.

Concrete Cover = 50 mm

Spacing of Foundation Bar =150 mm

Spacing of wall vertical Bar = 150 mm

Spacing of wall distribution bar =150 mm

Spacing of Link Bar =300 mm

Dia of main bar of foundation = 16 mm

Dia of distribution bar of foundation =10 mm

Dia of vertical bar of wall inside = 16 mm

Dia of vertical bar of wall outside =12 mm

Dia of distribution bar of wall =10 mm

Dia of link bar of wall =8 mm

### Cutting length of Foundation Main Bar

Cutting length = 2 x(width + height ) – 5 x 90 degree bend  (90 degree bend = 2d = 2 × 16 =32 mm)

Width = foundation width – 2 concrete cover

Width = 2150 – 2×50 =2050 mm

Height = foundation height – 2 concrete cover

Height = 400- 2 x 50 =300 mm

Cutting length = 2 (2050+300) – 5×32 =4540=4.540 m

Total length of main bar = No’s of bar x cutting length of bar

Number of bar = total length of foundation /spacing +1

Number of bar = 9000/150 +1 =61 no’s

Total length of main bar =61 x 4.540 =276.94 m

### Weight of main Bar of foundation

Weight = d²/162.25 x length

Weight = (16)²/162.25 x 276.94 =433.80 kg=434 kg

### Cutting Length of Foundation Distribution Bar

Cutting length= length of retaining wall – 2 x concrete cover

Cutting length= 9000 – 2 x 50 =8900 mm =8.900 m

Total length of Foundation Distribution bar =No’s of bar x cutting length

Number of bar = total width /spacing +1

Number of bar = 2150/150+1= 15.33=16 no’s

Total length of Foundation Distribution bar = 16 x 8.900 =142.4 m

### Weight of Foundation Distribution bar

Weight = d²/162.25 x total length

Weight = (10)²/162.25 x 142.40 = 87.765 kg = 88 kg

### Cutting length of vertical bar inside

Cutting length =  T/B bend +total height of wall and foundation – T/B concrete cover – 2 x 90º bend( 90º bend 2×2d =2×16 =64 mm)

Cutting length vertical bar inside = (300+150) + ( 2500+400)- 2×50 -64 =3.186 m

Total length of vertical bar inside = No’s of bar x cutting length

Number of bar = total height of wall /spacing +1

Number of bar = 9000/150+1 =61 No’s

Total length of vertical bar inside =61 x 3.186 =194.346 m

### Weight of vertical bar inside

Weight =d²/162.25 x total length

Weight = (16)²/162.25 x 194.346=306.641 kg=365 kg

### Cutting length of vertical bar outside

Cutting length =  T/B bend +total height of wall and foundation – T/B concrete cover – 2 x 90 degree bend( 90 degree bend 2×2d =2×2×12 =48 mm)

Cutting length vertical bar outside = (300+150) + (2500+400) – 2×50 -48=3.202 m

Total length of vertical bar outside = No’s of bar x cutting length

Number of bar = total height of wall /spacing +1

Number of bar = 9000/150+1 =61 No’s

Total length of vertical bar outside =61 x 3.202 =195.322 m

### Weight of vertical bar inside

Weight =d²/162.25 x total length

Weight = (12)²/162.25 x 195.322=173.35=174 kg

### Cutting length of Distribution Bar of wall

Cutting length of distribution bar of wall=length of retaining wall – 2 concrete cover

Cutting length of distribution bar of wall= 9000 – 2×50 =8900=8.900 m

Total length of Distribution Bar of wall= No’s of bar x cutting length

Number of Distribution Bar of wall= height /spacing +1

Number of Distribution Bar of wall= 2500/150+1=18 No’s

Total length of Distribution Bar of wall= 18×8.900 =160.2 m

### Weight of Distribution Bar of wall

Weight of Distribution Bar of wall = d²/162.25 x total length

Weight = (10)²/162.25 x 160.2 =98.73=99 kg

### Cutting length of Link Bar of wall

Cutting length =  width of wall+2 bends -2 x concrete cover -2 x 90 degree bends (2 x 90 degree bends =2 x 2d=2×2×8=32)

Cutting length =  300+2×75 -2×50 – 32=318 mm=0.318 m

Total length = No’s of bar x cutting length

Number of bar along length side = total length /spacing +1

Number of bar =9000/300+1=31 Nos

Number of bar along height side = 2500/300 +1=9.33=10 no’s

Total number of bar = 31+10=41 nos

Total length = 41 x 0.318=13.038 m

Weight = d²/162.25 x total length

Weight =(8)²/162.25 x 13.038=5.142 kg=16 kg
