Gravel or coarse aggregate is one of the most important building material required in every civil construction work, its required for fill the excavation area, used as backfills, required for preparing the concrete mix, it will be in round or oval, angular, pea size shaped gravel.

Generally gravel quantity measured in volume and their mass, volume of gravel based on Imperial or US customary measurement system measured in cubic yard, cubic feet and cubic inch, and based on metric system and Indian Standard measured in cubic metre, cft and brass. Mass of gravel generally measured in kilograms, pounds and tons.

During the estimating gravel and crushed stone quantity for your construction work, prepairing of concrete mortar, you can do gravel calculation to know about how much gravel do i need and how much gravel in truck you can load. Gravel calculator will help you in determining quantity and volume of gravel

Gravel is made of rock is to build roads, path, driveway, Patio, pedestrian, pavement, pathways, roadways, landscaping, and etc.

Gravel is categorised according to their size, size more than 5mm put in the category of gravel, it is formed of igneous rocks. It is categorised as fine gravel (4 – 8 mm), medium gravel (8 – 16 mm), coarse gravel (16 – 32 mm), pebbles (32 – 64 mm), cobbles (64 – 256 mm) and Boulder more than 256mm.
