# Thread: how to calculate the steel weight?

1. ## how to calculate the steel weight?

Anybody know the formula to calculate the steel weight?

2. Volume x lbs/volume

3. +1 kelly

4. .283 lbs/cubic inch

5. Hello there
If you steel shape is simple their answers are right but are your shape is not as a geometric shape I suggest you model it in SolidWorks software and go to the evaluate and find its weight with a high accuracy

6. First calculate the volume of the steel sheet. Note: If you are calculating the weight of circular steel reinforcement bar than calculate its volume by using this formula (πD^2/4) and then just multiply by the density of steel which is 7850 kg/m^3 and you will get the final weight of the steel.

7. Calculate Weight of Steel Bars

1. Estimation of Steel Reinforcement for slab,beam and column.
2. Weight of steel Flat bar = (Length x width x thickness) x 7850.
3. Example 1: Determine the unit weight of MS Flat bar of width 40mm and Thickness of 20mm.
4. Weight of steel bar = Volume of steel Bar x Density of steel.
