Steel is the most used material in construction industry as it provides tensile strength to concrete. Please note the formula mentioned below is based on a thumb rule which is mostly used by civil engineers on field.
We need to first calculate the volume of concrete and then we multiply them with the Steel Weight in each member type. Refer to the table below for each member’s weight.
Use this tool to calculate the quantity of steel required.
|Member Type||Concrete Quantity||Steel Weight|
|Footing||1 m3||80 kg|
|Beam||1 m3||160 kg|
|Column||1 m3||110 kg|
|Slab||1 m3||80 kg|
|Staircase||1 m3||85 kg|
|Lintle/Chhajja/Coping||1 m3||50 kg|
|Retaining Wall||1 m3||60 kg|
