We will Exclude Steel Quantity in Concrete Calculation?

Welcome to your Quick Tip series write-up,

There are several unanswered questions which might be answered inside a minute or even within 2-3 sentences. Nobody particularly wants us to learn or no-one asks us in the job interview.

Nonetheless it is our obligation as the civil engineer to learn every in & away of construction.

Let’s begin.

If we calculate the concrete volume to cast structural members such as a beam, slab or footing, wwe don’t exclude the steel reinforcement quantity actually.*********)


Steel quantity varies from 1% â€?3% of the structural member’s volume that is comparatively low. So we will neglect that.

In simple,

Take the below example,

Typical beam drawing

We shall calculate the mandatory concrete volume for the aforementioned beam as,

V = L x B x D = 3 x 0.2 x 0.5 = 0.3 m3

Based on the thumb rule, the concrete wastage is 3%, the reinforcement for the aforementioned example could be 3% = 0.009 m3 

That steel reinforcement volume will undoubtedly be compromised with the wastage of concrete. In order that we don’t actually exclude the steel reinforcement in concrete calculation

We hope you realize the concept.

Happy Learning 🙂
