is the presentation of an information on the structural reinforcement detailing
of concrete members. Structural detailing is a branch of structural work
that transposes the idea or works of a structural engineer into working drawing
or easy utilization in the building construction works. Working drawing
are produced an engineer for easy use by the contractors.
The processes detailing put in place was in conjunction with the
recommendations of the concrete society and the institute of structural
engineers. In building construction a good interaction and contractors
are required. The methods, scates, symbols and notations must be
standardized and understood by all parties in a project to minimize risks and
A structure is broken down into identifiable elements for detailing work like
bean column, slab etc which enables the different detailing aspects to be
fully addressed and understood.
abbreviations recommended for structural detailing work are a s follows.

Before a designer can relate his
requirements dearly in a construction industry, a drawing is to be prepared;
this is because the drawing serves as a general means of communication.
Thus, the drawing is adopted mostly, then other means of communication in
A structured engineer mostly engages himself in designs on construction of
structures. Like roads, bridges, railways, dams, buildings and other
The structural engineer makes initial designs, which are usually free – hand
sketches of the work. These sketches are used to make clear and neat
working drawing, which will b e used by the builder of contractor after
approval for construction by the authorities involved.
The contributions of a detailer is highly significant to the construction
process, for a well detailed drawing is a good medium of reducing the risks of
building collapses and to avoid delays arising from doubts and too frequent
This project shows the methods and techniques needed for detailing of
reinforced concrete structures.
