Bar Bending Schedule Program in Microsoft Excel 1.0
Bar bending schedule is used to communicate the design requirement of reinforcement steel to the fabricator and execution team and to enumerate the weight of each size of steel. It is a list of reinforcement steel bars, which includes size and number of bars, cutting length of bars, weight of steel and a sketch representing the shape of bar to be bent. Generally, civil engineers who are familiar in RCC structure are employed to prepare Rebar bending schedule. When compared to common quantity take offs, preparation of Rebar schedule needs excessive time for calculation. These calculations include cutting length, deduction of bend allowance within cutting length and summary of weight of each size separately. Insertion of any omitted items or revisions in the drawing may lead to repeated calculations and consume ample time.
