Process to create a BBS

Recognition of members (steel bars)

Every type of bar generally contains a bar mark/designation.

Counting every type of bar

Counting can be done manually for a small concrete structure.

To workout the numbers of bars for a big slab structure, it is required to determine the width, clear cover and c/c (center to center) spacing among bars.

Numbers of bars = (width of concrete - 2 x clear cover)/c/c spacing between bars.
