3: Use the formulas: D2/162 to find the unit weight of steel in kg/m where D is dai of steel in mm

4: Longitudinal reinforcement should not be under 0.8% and over 6% of gross C/S

5: Use minimum 4 No’s of bars for Square column and 6 No’s of bars in Circular Column.

6: During concrete work Free fall of concrete should be not more than 1.50 meter.

7: Minimum thickness of slab is 125 mm

8: We should not use the lapping length if the dia of steel is over 36mm
