How To Calculate Quantity Of Binding Wires For Steel Bars

How To Calculate Quantity Of Binding Wires For Steel Bars:

Binding wires are used to tie the steel bars. Besides estimating steel quantity for different members it is also important to know the required amount of binding wires. So that we can order the correct quantity of steel. In this article, I will discuss how to calculate the quantity of binding wires.

Well, let me tell you one thing first, there is no such formula for calculating binding wires. Instead, we use some thumb rules as per the construction industry.

The quantity of binding wires depends on the type of structure where it will be used and the type of bar (diameter of bar length of the bar).

As per thumb rules,

Requirement of binding wires for 1 quintal (100 kg) of steel reinforcement = 0.9 to 1.3 kg

Requirement of binding wires for 1 ton (1000 kg) of steel reinforcement = 9 to 13 kg

Thus, the binding wire required for tying 1000 kg of 8 mm bars is about to 12 kg and for 28 mm or 32 mm bars it will be approximately 7 kg. Greater the diameter of the bar, the lesser the quantity of binding wire.
