Calculating Quantity of Earth by Knowing Dry Density Test of the Soil.

Task: To know the Density of the Soil in Kg/cum

Objective: To determine the volume and weight of earth work for payment of royalty, excavation and filling by knowing the Density of the Soil. (unit of density of soil is Kg/cum).


To calculate volume of quantity of Earth / Sand / Material we need to know 'Density of the Material'. Normally density of material is calculated by collecting core sample of the material either by drilling bore or taking loose samples from the stack. This task is performed in Soil Testing Laboratory either on the site or by the professional Soil Testing Laboratory.

Working out the Quantity of Soil:

To work out weight of soil we need to multiply Volume by Density of Soil so for given volume of 50 cum and soil having dry density of 1.70 Ton/cum the weight of soil will be 

Vol x Density (Ton/cum)

i.e 50 x 1.7 = 85 Ton.

To work out volume of soil with given weight of the Soil, we need to divide weight by the dry density of the soil, so for given weight of 16 tons the volume of the soil will be :

16 Tons/1.7 = 9.40 cum.

Most of what you articulate is astonishingly precise and that makes me ponder the reason why I had not looked at this in this light previously. Your piece truly did turn the light on for me as far as this subject matter goes. Nevertheless at this time there is actually just one factor I am not necessarily too cozy with so while I attempt to reconcile that with the actual core theme of your issue, let me observe what the rest of your readers have to point out.Well done.

Another thing I have noticed is for many people, below-average credit is the results of circumstances outside of their control. As an example they may are already saddled with an illness so that they have higher bills going to collections. Maybe it's due to a occupation loss or even the inability to work. Sometimes divorce or separation can truly send the budget in the wrong direction. Thanks sharing your notions on this blog site.
