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.
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, 1,200Kg of chippings and 150 Litres of water.
