Stirrup making is a process to angling reinforcement bars at expected edges into civil engineering work. Hand-operated bar bending requires vigorous physical exercise, which is generally done in a bad ergonomic atmosphere at construction site. This could begin to prolonged musculoskeletal complications such as profound back disorder among bar benders. Current research explains a numerical model for number of bends, torque and required time to process of a stirrup making method using human fortified flywheel motor based on testing data collected, applying a method of design for experimentation. Out of the above three models, the numerical model and its analysis for a number of bend for the stirrup producing process is described here. Findings obtained by the numerical model for a number of bends positively describes the degree of interaction of multiple independent parameters for stirrup producing operation.
