Civil Engineering Unit Conversion


Civil Engineering Unit Conversion

Unit conversion is very important to calculate a problem accurately. Here, the following unit conversions which are important for any competitive civil engineering examinations.

(N.B: The process of conversion depends on the specific situation and the intended purpose. This may be governed by regulation, contract, technical specifications or other published standards. Some conversions from one system of units to another need to be exact, without increasing or decreasing the precision of the first measurement. This is sometimes called soft conversion. It does not involve changing the physical configuration of the item being measured. By contrast, a hard conversion or an adaptive conversion may not be exactly equivalent. It changes the measurement to convenient and workable numbers and units in the new system. It sometimes involves a slightly different configuration or size substitution of the item. Nominal values are sometimes allowed and used.)
  1. 1 Bag Cement = 1.25 Cu. ft Cement = 50 Kg = 112 lbs
  2. 1 gal. water = 4.5461 L (UK) = 3.7854 L (US) = 10 lbs, 1 ppm = 1 mg/L
  3. 1 Ton = 2 Kips = 2000 lb = 908 kg
  4. 1 Metric Ton = 1000 kg = 2205 lb....
