Concrete slab cost comparison with PT slab cost
While going to build up a slab, there are different types of choices like RCC with a ready mix concrete, with a standard mix concrete as well as with pre-stressed concrete to be post-tension or pretension out of which post tension is much recognized. It becomes difficult to choose the perfect type of slab for any construction project. In this construction, the brief information is provided on the Concrete slab cost comparison with PT slab cost. With these spreadsheets, one can undertake a rapid preliminary analysis for the selection of perfect slab type.
No crucial variation is found in the design of slab with ready mix concrete or a standard mix concrete rather than the way their total cost of material is computed. But, for the pre-stressed slab, the whole design method varies.
In the sample spreadsheet, given below, the user should provide the specification of slab only one time as well as the rate of various materials. Then the design of slab is created in 8 ways. 3 RCC slabs with ReadyMix Concrete, 3 PT slab with 3 different specifications and 2 RCC slab with the standard mix.
Version 1.0 of Concrete slab cost comparison with PT slab cost spreadsheet
First spreadsheet (My Slab Design V1.0) is made for computing and comparing the cost of material necessary for the formation of equivalent slab with RCC ready mix and PT method which can be downloaded from the link given below. drive.google.com
Version 2.0 of Concrete slab cost comparison with PT slab cost spreadsheet: Due to some faults in Version 1.0 which are now removed and cost of material necessary for building slab with a standard mix of concrete and it’s design is also included.
To download updated second version 2.0 (My Slab Design V2.0), click on the following link drive.google.com
Version 3.0 of Concrete slab cost comparison with PT slab cost spreadsheet: In this version more details are provided for designing of PT slab as well as make it nearer to genuine design process and the unit of rate of strands/tendons were also modified from (per strand per meter) to (per metric ton) which has now similarity with actual market designations.
Most updated version 3.0 (My Slab Design V3.0) comprises of default rate of material similar to actual existing local market rates and these can be downloaded from the following link drive.google.com
Version 4.0 of Concrete slab cost comparison with PT slab cost spreadsheet This version (My Slab Design V4.0) contains some enhancements and can be downloaded by clicking on the link drive.google.com
Up-to-date design methods adhering to Indian Standards latest IS 456 and IS 1343 are followed. This spreadsheet can provide close idea of the cost of material essential for construction. It should be examined in an perfect manner prior to utilize for designing purpose.
