|Reinforcement calculation is long RCC design calculation.|
Step in general
Calculate load on member including dead load, live load, earthquake load, wind load, snow load.
take suitable section in view of architectural and deflection requirement.
Calculate bending moment, shear force, bond strength etc.
calculate reinforcement as per IS code for bending and shear
check for deflection, bond and serviceability etc
Over reinforcement not suggested as per code it is dangerous as fast failure.
Blind addition of bars are dangerous consult with structural engineer.
