Distance Between the parallel bars in a beam shall not be less than 25 mm

Lapping of main reinforcement shall be avoided at mid span

The Size of the Rods in a column shall not be less than 12 dia

There should be a minimum of 4 rods in a rectangular column and 6 in circular columns

Lapping of the Longitudinal bars in a column should be staggered

Longitudinal bar of a column that goes in to the footing shall be bent to a minimum length of 300 mm

Summary of Detailing of Reinforcement:

– Good detailing makes the RCC Strong, durable and free from defects like cracks, honeycombs etc.
– Ensure adequate gap between the rods to enable the concrete to pass through
– Minimum gap between the rods shall be 5mm more than the maximum size of the aggregates
– Avoid congestion of the rods at the beam-column junction
– Lapping of the column rods shall be staggered
