### Bending Dimensions - Preferred Shapes

Draw the shape code on paper. Assign the bar dimensions A through E to various parts of the shape. A dimensions can be assigned along the length parallel of a bar segment, or as a vertical or horizontal projection. Enter the new shape code number may be alphanumeric and click Add New SC.

In the dimension list, enter default values for the dimensions bar bending shape codes A through E.

If the shape does not use a dimension, e. A through D and no E, set the dimension's value to zero.

Any shape code can be easily found through popup window in the program. A Civil Engineer who has a minimum knowledge of MS Excel can handle this program without any training.

Note 4 Stock lengths are available in a limited numer of lengths e. Dimension A for shape code 01 should be regarded as indicative and used for the purpose of calculating total length.

### BS8666 Shape Codes

Actual delivery lengths should be by agreement with supplier. The dimensions in parentheses are the free dimensions. If a shape given in this table is required but a bar bending shape codes dimension is to allow for the possible deviation, the shape shall be drawn out and given the shape code 99 and the free dimension shall be indicated in parentheses.

The length of straight between two bends shall be at least 4d. NOTE 1 The length equations for shape codes 14, 15, 25, 26, 27, 28, 29, 34, 35, 36 and 46 are approximate and where the bend angle is greater than 45 degrees, the length should be calculated more accurately allowing for the difference between the specified overall dimensions and the true length measured along the central axis of the bar.

When the bending angles approach 90 degrees, it is bar bending shape codes to specify shape code 99 with a fully dimensioned sketch. NOTE 3 For shapes with straight bar bending shape codes curved lengths e.
