** For the calculation procedure, go through the following steps.👇**

Let us calculate the cutting length of the** 2-legged **stirrup as shown below.

** Given data **:

Column size = 225mm × 300mm.

Clear cover = 40mm.

Rebar diameter = 12mm.

No. of rebars = 4nos.

Stirrup bar dia. = 8mm.

**Calculation:**

The cutting length of the stirrup

=[{(2nos. × (a +b )) + (hook length )} - {(90° bend ) + (135° bend)}]

As you can observe in the above drawing, the stirrup has

90° bend **👉** 3nos.

135° bend **👉** 2nos.

Hook length **👉** 2nos.

**Therefore, the cutting length of the 2-legged stirrup**

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

Where,

a = [column length - (2nos.× clear cover) - (2 nos. × 1/2 × diameter of stirrup bar.)]

= [300mm. - (2nos.× 40mm.) - (2nos. × 1/2 × 8mm.)]

= [300mm. - 80mm. - 8mm.]

a = **212mm.**

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

= [225mm. - (2nos.× 40mm.) - (2nos. × 1/2 × 8mm.)]

= [225mm. - 80mm. - 8mm.]

b = **137mm.**

** The cutting length of the 2-legged stirrup**

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

=[{(2nos. × (212mm. +137mm.)) + (2nos.× 10d )} - {(3nos.×2d ) + (2nos.× 3d)}]

= [{(2nos. × 349mm.) + (2nos.× 10 × 8mm.)} - {(3nos.×2 × 8mm. ) + (2nos.× 3 × 8mm.)}]

= [ {698mm. + 160mm.} - {48mm. + 48mm.}]

= [858mm.- 96mm.]

= **762mm.**

= **0.762m.**
