The construction process for slab and beam

Bending and binding steel bars

While creating the design of the slab, it is assumed that the concrete has good compressive strength but it is feeble in tensile strength. To make the structure sustainable against the tensile stress, the steel bars are arranged.

Placement of steel bars

Steel bars diameter and its distance in RCC slab is computed by designing the slab based on the load and span of the slab. Normally, 12 mm, 10 mm and 8 mm diameter steel bars are utilized in RCC slab as per the length of the span of the slab and correspondingly gapping is provided as 4.5” to 6” in the main bars and 6” to 8” in distribution bars.

Laying of cement concrete

Arrange walking way on steel bars by setting wooden plates to get rid of any issue in steel bars. Now, the cement concrete mix should be placed according to design but it should be kept over 1:2:4 ratio. The mix should have been mixed mechanically and vibrated after being placed on the slab.
