Sr. No. Materials Name Density
1. Cement 1440 kg/m3
2. Sand or Fine Aggregate 1450 to 2082 kg/m3
3. Bricks 1600 to 1920 kg/m3

What is the density of Portland cement in kg m3?

3150 kg/m3
The commonly assumed density of 3150 kg/m3 (3.15 g/cm3) for portland cement  will not be correct when limestone is interground into the cement.

### What is ordinary Portland cement?

Ordinary Portland cement (simply called ordinary cement) refers to the hydraulic binding material ground by mixing Portland cement clinker, 6% ~ 15% blended materials, and appropriate amount of gypsum, code-named P• O.

What is specific gravity of cement?

Limit: Specific gravity of cement = 3.15 g/cc.

What is density of PPC concrete?

The densities of OPC and PPC concretes were found to be 1665.82 kg/m3 and 1761.31 kg/m3, respectively.

## How many bags of cement is 1m3?

Approximately 29 bags are required for 1m3 of cement.

How do I calculate 1m3 of concrete?

The quantities of materials for 1 m3 of concrete production can be calculated as follows: The weight of cement required = 7.29 x 50 = 364.5 kg. Weight of fine aggregate (sand) = 1.5 x 364.5 = 546.75 kg. Weight of coarse aggregate = 3 x 364.5 = 1093.5 kg.

What is density of a cement?

### What are the advantages of portland cement?

Portland pozzolana cement (PPC) has following advantages when concrete is in its hardened state.

• Compressive Strength & Rate of Strength Gain.
• Modulus of Elasticity.
• Bond of Concrete to Steel.
• Heat of Hydration.
• Reduced Shrinkage.
• Permeability.

What are the 5 types of portland cement?

Five types of portland cement are standardized in the United States by the American Society for Testing and Materials (ASTM): ordinary (Type I), modified (Type II), high-early-strength (Type III), low-heat (Type IV), and sulfate-resistant (Type V).

Is cement a density code?

Specific gravity test /Density of Cement test : And the IS code for Specific gravity test is IS 2720- Part 3.

## What is the dry density of cement?

Cement density (weight) can be 830 – 1650 kg per cubic meter or 52 – 103 lbs per cubic foot . Cement that is pneumatically loaded into silos is less dense while cement that has been stored and exposed to vibration, like being transported, is more dense.

What are the unit weights of concrete?

A normal weight concrete weighs 2400 kg per cubic meter or 145 lbs per cubic foot (3915 lbs per cubic yard). The unit weight of concrete (density) varies depending on the amount and density of the aggregate, the amount of entrained air (and entrapped air), and the water and cement content.

What is the density of cement (OPC)?

Since we measure mass in kg or lb and volume in litre or cubic meter or cubic feet, hence density is stated in Kg/m3 or lb/ft3. The density of OPC cement is = 1440 Kg/m3. The density of sand varies according to its conditions ( Dry or Wet or packed).

### What are the properties of concrete?

The Properties of Concrete are its characteristics or basic qualities. The main properties of concrete are: Cohesiveness and Hardness. Workability. Strength. Durability. Modulus of elasticity. Volume change.
