# Quantity of Steel per m³

Slab/Lintel:
Minimum percentage of steel =0.7%

∴Quantity of steel = (0.7/100) x 1 = 0.007 m³
Weight of steel = 0.007 x 7850 = 54.95≊55 kg/m³

Maximum percentage of steel =1.0%

∴Quantity of steel = (1.0/100) x 1 = 0.01 m³
Weight of steel = 0.01 x 7850 = 78.5 kg /

Beam:
Minimum percentage of steel =1.0%

∴Quantity of steel = (1.0/100) x 1 = 0.01 m³
Weight of steel = 0.01 x 7850 = 78.5 kg /m³

Maximum percentage of steel =2.0%

∴Quantity of steel = (2.0/100) x 1 = 0.02 m³
Weight of steel = 0.02 x 7850 = 157 kg/m³

Column:
Minimum percentage of steel =0.7%

∴Quantity of steel = (0.8/100) x 1 = 0.008 m³
Weight of steel = 0.008 x 7850 = 62.80 kg/m³

Maximum percentage of steel =6.0%

∴Quantity of steel = (6.0/100) x 1 = 0.06 m³
Weight of steel = 0.06 x 7850 = 471 kg /

Foundation:
Minimum percentage of steel =0.7%

∴Quantity of steel = (0.5/100) x 1 = 0.005 m³
Weight of steel = 0.005 x 7850 = 39.25 kg/m³

Maximum percentage of steel =0.8%

∴Quantity of steel = (1.0/100) x 1 = 0.008 m³
Weight of steel = 0.008 x 7850 = 62.80 kg /
