The Importance Of 1.54 In Concrete

In today's tutorial section we are highlighting the significance of 1.54 in concrete. To find out what this particular figure indicates in concrete please study the following explanation. This is one of the most vital aspects of civil engineering which is also considered during the calculation to determine the quantity of sand cement and aggregate.

Detailed Explanation:

Volume of one cube which containing length×width×height = 1x1x1 = 1m3

The figure (1m3) is addressed as wet volume.

If wet volume is converted into dry volume then the dry volume is raised 54% of wet volume.

Hence, Dry volume =1+(54/100×1)=1.54 m3


The dry volume of concrete is equal to one and half times of wet volume. But it is better to use 1.54 for calculating dry volume.
