You Want to learn all about column Starter such as column starter definition, What is Column Starter, how thick should a column starter, use and Purpose of starter in the column so this Civil Experience article give you The Ultimate Guide to Column Starter

    Column Starter Definition

    Column Starter definition is RCC Column starter is a smaller part of the column of concrete material with the same length and breadth of the column which gives a guideline for column extension for the perfect layout

    Why we Provide Column Starter For Rcc Column?

    Column Starter construction is generally a casting of concrete material with column starter size/column starter frame equivalent width and length of column section and the height of column starter box should be around 6 centimetres and it is caused in such a manner that equal cover is left and circling the reinforcement bars off the column and then shuttering of the column is provided

    Column construction need special care like layout marking, column starter marking, column starter construction, Reinforcement work, Joint & lapping in RC columns, shuttering, Minimum Concrete Cover, casting as well as curing of concrete

    Why Column Starter Use in Column?

    Column starter has many advantages but the short and main purposes of the starter are to find turn the formwork of a column vertically to maintain the sufficient gap among the column reinforcement and shuttering and the rest of listed below
    1. Column starter is easily set up to check the centre line of the column with the help of the starter centre line | It is easier to set up and check the centre line of the starter as compared to that of the column right
    2. The existence of the starter of the column as exact place fixing the column becomes stronger sometimes the column formwork turn out to the to be skew with starter this issued is reduced completely
    3. Fixing of the column shuttering is more accurate withdrawing because starter already exists and The chances of column formwork becoming skew are eliminated
    4. Once the shuttering for the column is completed, supports or bracing are settled, the verticality there for examined on two sides (adjacent faces) with a plumb bob and alignment is examined through a cotton or nylon thread or as you like 
    5. Then the column is cast with a structural design mix after all designs checked and approved by the structure engineer
    6. The column shuttering shall be removed the next day and the curing shall be taken up. it is depending on the climate condition (temperature and humidity), the curing can be done either by spraying water at intermediate intervals or by wrapping the column with hessian clothes and keeping it wet
