# FIND COST OF SLAB…IN SIX STEPS

Dear Friends ,

We determined the weight of the Re-Bars for a one way slab in earlier post.

Refer the post here  : ONE WAY SLAB : REBARS

Today , let  us find out the cost of materials in totality.

Please remember this is only the cost of materials.

For finding out the complete cost of this item , we shall need to add many other elements.

That we shall learn in a separate post.

Stay connected.

Bye

Hello sir i have been recently visiting your blog and this is very useful. i need your suggestions regarding concrete mi design . if i am using m 20 concrete then i know the ratio as 1: 1.5: 3 which says that around 5.2 bags of cement , 0.27 c.m of sand and 0.545 c.m of aggregate but on site i tried using this ratio for eample: the vessels which we used to make this m20 concrete . it takes 4 nos of this vessel to occupy 1 bag of cement of 50 kg so i calculated the sand and metal quantiy as 4*1.5= 6 veseels of sand and similarly 4*3=12 parts of metal but this results into un fit concrete misc which i can see visibly so can u help me what to do in this mateer as theoretical ratio of m20 doesnt produce good concrete

Alright .
Let me explain.
The bulk density of cement is 1440 Kg /cum.
In a bag , we have 50 kg.
Therefore , in 1 cum , we shall have 1440 kg / 50 = 28.8 bags of cement.
Got it ?
