 Wed Jan 30, 2013 Post  #1 S L Gupta (Civil Engg)Join date: Mar 2008 Dear Kiran Kumar                    For roof of RCC 100 sft area and 6'' thick slab, the cement required is 8.5 bags for cement concrete 1:2:4 ratio.
 Wed Jan 30, 2013 Post  #2 RENJIJoin date: Jan 2012 Post subject: Ratio 1:2:4Dear Gupta,What is the ratio 1:2:4.What is the ratio of sand and aggragte(in cft) for 1bag cement as per above ratio.Renji
 Fri Feb 01, 2013 Post  #3 S L Gupta (Civil Engg)Join date: Mar 2008 Dear Renji          The ratio 1;2;4 means 1part of cement, 2 parts of coarse sand and 4 parts of bazri. i.e. coarse aggerigate.
 Fri Feb 01, 2013 Post  #4 RENJIJoin date: Jan 2012 Post subject: The ratio 1;2;4Sir,My question was for 1packet of cement how much sand(in cft) and bazri(in cft) required to make concrete in the ratio of 1:2:4? ThanksRenji
 Fri Feb 01, 2013 Post  #5 S L Gupta (Civil Engg)Join date: Mar 2008 Dear Renji          It is very much clear that the ratio 1;2;4 means 1part of cement, 2 parts of coarse sand and 4 parts of bazri. i.e. coarse aggerigate, You can measure the all gradient by volume Or weight. As further clarification the  1.  One cement bag = 1.25 cft so 2. Coarse sand       = 2.5 cft 3. Bazri/ stone ballast/ Coarse aggregate = 5cft(cubic feet)
 Fri Feb 01, 2013 Post  #6 RENJIJoin date: Jan 2012 Post subject: 1:2:4Thanks Gupta Sir for the clarification.One more query , Is 1:2:4 ratio is idle for both flat and slope roof.Renji
 Fri Feb 08, 2013 Post  #7 S L Gupta (Civil Engg)Join date: Mar 2008 Dear Renji         For laying RCC SLAB whether it is flat or in slope 1;2;4 is good ratio, but now a days keeping in mind the earthquake factor one should use 1;1.5;3 ratio in RCC SLAB.
 Mon Feb 11, 2013 Post  #8 akmurty1Join date: Sep 2012 Post subject: Cement required Per Square feetThe average requirement is about half a bag per square foot of construction
 Tue Feb 12, 2013 Post  #9 S L Gupta (Civil Engg)Join date: Mar 2008 Dear        The cement required for one sft of slab or roof is .1bags to .15bags as per thickness and ratio used in the slab.
