How To Calculate the Volume And Weight of Asphalt For Road Work

 

Let us now Calculate the volume and weight of the asphalt in the below-given drawing.

 

Calculate the volume & weight of the asphalt Road

Given data

Length of the asphalt = 2km = 2000m.

Width of the asphalt = 8m.

The thickness of the asphalt = 100mm. = 0.1m.

Before proceeding further, Please go through the article.

The volume of the asphalt in the road 

= length × breadth × depth

= 2000m. × 8m. × 0.1m.

1600 cum.

The compacted weight of the asphalt

= Volume × asphalt density.

As you know,

The density of the asphalt = 2243 kg/cum.

So, the total weight of the asphalt

= 1600 cum. × 2243 kg/cum.

3,56,800 kg.

While doing the Road Construction work, the asphalt is procured in tons from the hot mix plant.

1 ton = 1000 kg.

The total QTY of Asphalt required 

= [3,56,800 ÷ 1000]

356.80 tons.
