Use of excel and AutoCAD for detailing Steel Reinforcing (Rebar) Bending Schedules for Concrete
This an exclusive construction video by R.S. Walls (Pr. Eng) who associated with Stellenbosch University. In this video, Mr. Walls explicitly narrates detailing Steel Reinforcing (Rebar) Bending Schedules for Concrete with the use of AutoCAD and Excel.
The following topics are discussed in this video :-
- Definition of rebar?
- Definition of a bending schedule?
- Process for drawing a schedule in AutoCAD?
- Process for generating the schedule in Excel and send it into AutoCAD.
- General guidance
One can download the spreadsheet from Steel reinforcing (rebar) spreadsheet for detailing reinforced concrete in Excel
Formation of highly detailed reinforcement drawing and bar bending schedule is a vital part in the construction jobsite as it helps construction professionals to obtain a superior level of quality control in jobsite and get benefits in several aspects of construction.
