Unit Weight of Building Material

In this article, you are going to learn about the unit weight of different kinds of building materials that are used in construction projects.

First of all, do you know 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

    Unit Weight (specific weight) = weight / volume

    Why is Unit Weight Important in Civil Engineering?

    Estimation is the extremely most important part for civil engineering work & building construction, Road/ highway construction, Airport, and so on.

    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

    Every Civil Engineer who prefers smart work in design and estimation for any construction site work always does their work by Civil Excel Sheet for errorless design and estimation must check Civil Experience excel for civil engineering by below link which you don’t want to miss.
