Reinforcing steel bar sizes

U.S. rebar sizes: Imperial rebar designations represent the rebar diameter in fractions of 1/8 inch, such that #8 = 8/8 inch = 1 inch diameter. Area = (rebar size/9) 2 such that area of #8 = (rebar 8/9)2 = 0.79 inch. This applies to #8 rebars and smaller. Larger rebars have a slightly larger diameter than the one computed using the 1/8 inch convention.

 Steel reinforced bar concrete beam formula

There are four main rules for steel reinforced concrete beams:
1. To count the height of the reinforced concrete beam devide the gap length by 20. For example: the gap is 4 meters. Thу minimum height of the concrete beam should be 4 / 20 = 0,2 meter

2. To count the width of the concrete beam: Multiply the height by 5 and devide by 7. For example: the beam height is 0,2 meter. 0,2 x 5 / 7 = 0,14 m.

3. The beam should be enforsed with at least 4 steel re bars d12-14 in two levels.

4. The concrete should be applied all volume at once without big waiting gaps.
