Job Concrete Mix Volume

Written by Jerry Ratzlaff on . Posted in Civil Engineering

Job concrete mix volume, abbreviated as \(V_a\), can determine the amount of concrete that needs to be delivered to a job site.

 

Job Concrete Mix Volume formula

\(\large{ V_a =  \frac{ W_m }{ SG \; \rho_w }   }\)   

Where:

 Units English Metric
\(\large{ V_a }\) = absolute volume \(\large{ft^3}\) \(\large{m^3}\)
\(\large{ \rho_w }\)   (Greek symbol rho) = density of water \(\large{\frac{lbm}{ft^3}}\) \(\large{\frac{kg}{m^3}}\)
\(\large{ SG }\) = specific gravity of material \(\large{dimensionless}\)
\(\large{ W_m }\) = weight of material \(\large{lbf}\) \(\large{N}\)
