Let us now calculate the cutting length of **triangular stirrups** as shown below.

__Given data:__

First, we will calculate the value of a & b as shown in the above drawing.

Here,

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

For a clear understanding, I have redrawn the triangular stirrup separately as shown below.

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

**512mm**.

**362mm.**

[ H is a hypotenuse of a (half ) triangle ]

=√( 512/2 )2 +( 362 )2

=√65536 +131044

= √ 196580

=**443.373 mm.**

__The triangular stirrup cutting length__

= [ ( 2 × 443.373 ) + 512mm + ( 2nos. × 10d ) - ( 4nos.× 3d )]

{Here, 10d is taken as hook length , 3d for the bend above 90°, & d is stirrup bar dia.}

= [ 886.746 + 512mm + ( 2nos.× 10 × 8mm ) - ( 4nos.× 3× 8mm )

= [1398.746 mm + 160mm - 96mm.]

= 1462.746mm = **1.462m.**

Note: Bend above 90° **ðŸ‘‰** (2nos. of the hook bend + 2nos.) on the other two stirrup corners.
