**Diamond stirrup cutting length as per IS 2502**. **Back ðŸ‘ˆ Part 1**

Let us now calculate the cutting length of a diamond stirrup as shown below.

#### Given data:

**The cutting length formula for diamond stirrup**

= [(4H) +(2nos × hook length) - {(2nos. × 135° bend) + (3nos.× 90° bend )}]

I have given a diamond stirrup drawing showing H, a & b

( H is the hypotenuse of a triangle.)

First, we will calculate the value of a & b

a = [ column depth - (2nos.× clear cover) - ( 1/2 × 2nos. × dia. of the stirrup bar).]

= [ 500mm - (2nos.× 40mm) - ( 1/2 × 2nos. × 8mm) ]

= [ 500mm - 80mm - 8mm ]

= **412mm.**

b = [ column width - (2nos.× clear cover) - (1/2 × 2nos. × dia. of the stirrup bar).]

= [ 600mm - (2nos.× 40mm) - (1/2 × 2nos. × 8mm) ]

= [ 600mm - 80mm - 8mm ]

=** 512mm.**

Now,

H =√( a/2 )2 +( b/2 )2

=√( 412/2 )2 +( 512/2 )2

=√( 206 )2 +( 256 )2

=√ 42436 + 65536

=√107972

= **328.59 mm.**

**The cutting length of diamond stirrup by the regular method**

= [(4H) +(2nos × hook length) - {(2nos. × 135° bend) + (3nos.× 90° bend )}]

** Note**:

1. Here,10d is taken for hook length.

2. We have deducted 2d for 90° bend -3nos., & 3d for 135° bend -2nos. ]

= [(4 × 328.59) + ( 2nos. ×10d ) - {( 2nos × 3d ) + ( 3nos × 2d )}]

= [ 1314.36mm + ( 2nos × 10 × 8mm ) - {(2nos × 3 ×8mm ) + (3nos × 2 × 8mm )}]

= 1314.36mm + 160mm - { 48mm + 48mm}]

= 1474.36mm - 96mm

=1378.36mm.= **1.378m**

The cutting length of the diamond stirrup is calculated as per IS- 2502 for the same given data so that you can compare the difference between the cutting length in these two ways of calculation.

1. Cutting length of the diamond stirrup by the regular method = 1.378m

2. Cutting length of the diamond stirrup as per IS-2502 = 1.484m

The difference in cutting length = 0.106m

i.e. 7.69% more as per IS-2502.
