Where to cut off bottom bar that in the continuous end span of beam in SMF

Where to cut off bottom bar that in the continuous end span of beam in SMF

(OP)
Hello every one.. we were given a plan that has a reinforced conrete beam that would look like below:
Breadth = 400
Depth = 500

______continuous end_____Midspan___discontinuous end
top_____:__5_______________3_________5
bottom__:__4_______________3_________4

and there is a rectangular outer and inner stirrup requirement..

the question is how can I implement the 4 and 3 bottom bar requirement?...

will I make the three bars continuous and cut 1 bar from the end continuous end?
if so where shall I end the bottom extra bar from the continuous end..

or will I cut them all like we would cut the extra bar at mid span at to terminate at beamLength/5 and cut the extra bottom bar at continuous end also at beamLength/5?

If you were "given a plan", why don't you ask whoever did the plan?

Are those the number of bars of a given size? If so, the reinforcement doesn't make any sense, unless you have some really strange loading requirements.

Dik?

Hello dik and hokie66 . . .thanks for your replay again...

those numbers are the number of bars and the diameter is 20 mm . . . .yup we were given a plan . . . but the inspector would suggested that such is a small matter that we would just solve it by ourselves.. they suggest that it would take a long process just to clarify the design if we would try to contact the designer..( i live in the philippines so it might give you an idea that the government is so slow in responding problems like this,, and this is a government project). . i hope you would understand somehow and help me some more.
