For example
We need to calculate dry mortar for 1cum concrete

We have 1m x 1m x 1m = 1 cum (cubic meter)

1 cum is wet volume
Now we need to convert 1 cum wet volume into 1cum dry volume

  3. How do you take off a Staircase


Dry volume = wet volume + 54% of wet volume

Dry volume = 1 + ((55/100) x 1)
Dry volume = 1 + (.54 x 1)
Dry volume = 1 + .54
Dry volume = 1.54 cum
when you need to calculate
Dry volume of concrete than just multiply wet volume with 1.54 to calculate dry morter
