Difference between ties and stirrups in column and beam


In this video i am going to show you the difference between Ties and stirrups.
Lateral ties are used in columns. The load is carried by the vertical steel bars, while the ties are provided to keep the bars in their required position without getting disturbed while compacting the concrete by the needle vibrators. The ties do not take or share any part of the load coming on the column. The ties are evenly spaced along the full height of the column. 

Stirrups. The term stirrups is used to define the transverse reinforcement provided in beams where the primary mode of load transfer is through bending and shear. The stirrups are provided to prevent cracks forming in the concrete beam due to tension, bending and shear. The spacing of the stirrups is not uniform throughout the length of the beam. They are spaced closer near the supports and farther apart in the middle portion.
