How to calculate the quantities for steel, cement, sand & aggregates in a flat slab

This construction video tutorial will produce some useful tips on how to find out bar bending schedule of flat plate slab as well as work out the quantities of different materials like steel, cement, sand & aggregates inside a slab.

In this video a sample slab drawing is taken and it’s length and width are 2 meters and 5 meters. Clear cover for this slab is 25 mm. Main bar as well as distribution bar contain the size of 12 mm. Center to center distance is 150 mm. The density of the slab is 125 mm.

The mix grade used in the slab is M15 in the proportions 1:2:4.

The quantities will be calculated on the basis of the above dimensions.

To learn the complete process, watch the following youtube video.
