Description :- RCC sewage or drainage pipe is made of concrete and steel bar. concrete is mixture  of small size  of aggregate ,sand and cement, RCC Pipe have Steel bar which gives more strength to pipe. Drainage pipe is hollow in shape having two diameter first one is outer diameter and second one is inner diameter having some thickness.

Uses :- it is mainly underground or tunnel pipe for transporting of sewage material from house and commercial building and factories, it carry sewage material to the water treatment plant.

Size :- sewage RCC Pipe come in the various size having diameter ranging from 225 mm to 1800 mm and also there density of material vary from 1850 kg/m3 to 2500 kg/m3 according to  material which are used to form  the sewage RCC Pipe like quantity of sand, cement, aggregate and steel . Also there thickness of pipe  is vary according to their diameter size,

Calculation :- now the question  is how to calculate weight of given RCC sewage or drainage pipe. We know that weight of drainage pipe is equal to  multiplication  of volume and density of pipe.

Weight = Volume ×density

Given dimension :-

 Outer Dia D1 =800mm =0.8 m

 Inner Dia D2 =700 mm =0.7m

Thickness of pipe = 100 mm =0.1m

Length of pipe = 2 meter

Density of RCC sewage pipe = 1850 kg/m3

Solve :-

Weight = volume × density

Now we should first calculate the volume of drainage pipe

  Volume = Area × Length

 V = π/4 ( D1*2 – D2*2) × Length

 Volume = 3.12/4 (0.8*2 -0.7*2 )  m2× 2 m

 Volume = 3.14/4 × 0.15 ×2 m3

 Volume of pipe = 0.2355 m3

Density =1850 kg /m3

Weight = 0.2355 m3 × 1850 kg /m3

 Weight = 435 .675 kg      Ans.
