Ratio of Steel required to Cement Concrete

Different Parts of the Building | Requirement of Steel TMT Bars in Kg |
---|---|

Plate Slabs | 95-135 |

Bases | 90-130 |

Floor Slabs | 80-120 |

One way Slabs | 75-125 |

Similarly, you may ask, how much steel is required for slab?

Assuming it a normal residential building with light loading conditions, thickness of **slab** will be 120 mm. Area of **slab** is 1000 sft means 93 Sqm. 120mm thickness means volume is approx 11.20 cum. So, for normal conditions, **steel required** is approx 900 kg plus 5%=950 kg.

**RCC**Beam & Column need 2-3%

**steel**, say 2.5%

**steel**.

Similarly, it is asked, how is RCC calculated in slab?

**RCC slab** volume can be found by multiplying the thickness with the area of the **slab**. Now generally we consider the amount of steel in any concrete member is 2% of the concrete volume. So subtracting the steel amount one can easily find the concrete volume.

One cubic metre of **concrete** weighs 2.5 Tonnes. Typically, **1m3 of concrete** is made up of 350Kg of cement, 700Kg of sand, 1,200**Kg** of chippings and 150 Litres of water.
