Concrete Volume

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Civil Engineering

Concrete volume, abbreviated as V, is a mixture of gravel, Portland cement, rock and sand.

 

Concrete Volume formulas

\(\large{ V =  h \; l \; w  }\)  
\(\large{ T =  r_c \;+\; r_s \;+\; r_{co}  }\)  
\(\large{ Q_c =  \frac{ r_c }{ T } \; V  }\)  
\(\large{ Q_s =  \frac{ r_s }{ T } \; V  }\)  
\(\large{ Q_{co} =  \frac{ r_{co} }{ T } \; V  }\)  

Where:

\(\large{ V }\) = volume of concrete

\(\large{ Q_c  }\) = cement quantity

\(\large{ r_c }\) = cement ratio

\(\large{ Q_{co} }\) = coarse quantity (gravel and rock)

\(\large{ r_{co} }\) = coarse ratio

\(\large{ h }\) = height of concrete

\(\large{ l }\) = length of concrete

\(\large{ Q_s }\) = sand quantity

\(\large{ r_s }\) = sand ratio

\(\large{ T }\) = total ratio of ingredients

\(\large{ w }\) = width of concrete
