## NOTE: For exposed elements add the following:

Beams +100%; Columns +15%; Walls +50%
Average values for typical concrete frames:
Heavy industrial = 130 kg/m3
Commercial = 100 kg/m3
Institutional = 90 kg/m3

## FOR FOUNDATION 50KG PER CUM

FOR SLAB 80KG PER CUM
FOR BEAM 110 KG PER CUM
FOR COLUMN 160KG PER PER CUM
FOR WALL 80 KG PER CUM
FOR SHELVES 80KG PER CUM
FOR STAIR CASE 100 KG PER CUM

## The quantity of steel can be calculated by formula:

d*d/162 kg/m. where d=diameter of bar in metre
this formula has been derived by relation
density=mass/volume

## However, percentage of steel in rcc structure can be taken

as 0.15% of the gross area of cocrete

## The question should be framed thus: "How to calculate

quantity of steel for practical purpose of construction"....
"In a given RCC design" it is simple to arrive at the
quantity by calculating the lenght of each bar & multiply
with the unit weight of given dia.
The thumb rule for calculating steel quantity is 1.5 to 2.0
