Unit Weight for Civil Engineering Materials - Civil Experiences

Unit Weight of Building Material

In this article, you are going to learn about the unit weight of different kind of building materials which are used in the construction project

First of all, you know what is the unit weight?

What is the Unit Weight?

Unit weight is also known as the specific weight
Unit weight or specific weight of any material is the weight per volume 
SI unit of unit weight is KN/m3

Uniit weight (specific weight) = weight / volume

Why is unit Weight important?

Estimation is the most important for construction work od building construction, Road/ highway construction, Airport etc so...

In the Civil engineering field, every work of construction need the calculation and without unit weight our calculation for estimation is worthless

We can calculate the design load to safely transfer with the help of unit weight

One short example of the use of unit weight, while buying cement for any work we need the quantity of cement required in bags only which understand by seller
