Civil Engineering Measurements & Conversion Factors

Civil Engineering Measurements & Conversion Factors

Estimation is a standout among the most imperative things in structural building and without estimations, we can not finish any development. Here I have recorded some essential estimations and change factors which are most generally utilized as a part of structural designing. Expectation it will help you in your work.

Civil Engineering Measurements & Conversion Factors

BASIC QUANTITIES AND UNITS:

BASIC STANDARDS:
1 meter = 39.37 inches =1.09 yards.
1 inch = 25.4 millimeters = 2.54cm.
1 Kilogram (kg) = 2.2046 pounds (lb).
1 gallon (imp.) = 4.546 liters.
1 liter = 0.22 galls (imp.)
1 gallon (US) = 3.785 liters.

METRIC UNIT OF WEIGHT/MASS:
1 tonne = 1000 kilograms = 1,000,000 grams.
1 quintal = 100 kilograms = 100,000 grams.
1 Slug = 14.606 kg
1 Slug = 32.2 lb                                                                 
________________________________________
MEASUREMENTS OF LENGTH:
1 foot = 12 inches.
1 yard = 3 feet.
1 furlong = 220 yards.
1 mile = 8 fulongs.
1 Kilometer (Km) = 1000 meters.
1 meter (m) = 100 centimeters (cm).
1 cm = 10 millimeter (mm).
________________________________________
METRIC UNITS FOR LIQUID MEASUREMENTS:
1 liter = 1000ml.
1 liter = 1kg.
1 kiloliter (1000 liters) = 1 cubic meter/ 1 cu.m/ 1 m3.
________________________________________
CONVERSION FACTORS:
1 cu. ft. = 28.317 liters.
1 cu. ft. = 0.028 cu. meters.
1 cu. ft. = 6.24 galls (imperial).
1 cu. ft. = 7.48 galls (US).
1 imp. gall = 1.20 galls (US), liquid.
1 imp. gall = 1.03 galls (US), dry.
________________________________________
MEASUREMENTS OF AREA:
1 Acre = 43560 sq. ft
1 Acre = 4046.46 sq. m
1 Acre = 8 Kanals.                                                                 
1 Kanal = 20 Marlas.
1 Marla = 225 sq. ft (* in some regions 272 sq. ft)
1 Marla = 15.50 sq.m
________________________________________
MISCELLENIUS CONVERSION FACTORS:
1 cu.m = 35.32 cu.ft.
1 Pound = 4.448 Newton (Force).
1 klb = 4.448 kN.
1 Psi (lb/sq.in) = 6.689 Pascal (N/sq.m)
1 (lb/sq. ft) = 0.048 (kN/sq.m)

  1. Yeah "Civil and Structural Engineering" website activities is very good, I think more and more text posting related with structure and other section of Building in this page. thanks..
    Which people are interested in Architect Engineering, look at my some Architect Design in my website Click here..
