Rod or steel bar also known as Rebar is short form of reinforcing bar, it is steel Rod or Steel wire provided as tension bar in concrete structure, used in reinforced concrete structure such as column, beam and slab of house construction and it also used in reinforced masonry structure. It is used to increase the tensile strength of concrete structure.

Rod or steel bars or Reinforcing bar/rebar surface is often deformed with ribs to promote a better bonding with concrete material and reduce the risk of slippage. The most common Rods or Reinforcing bar/ rebar is carbon steel of hot rolled round bar with the deformation patterns, the Steel rebar/ Rod may be also coated with epoxy resin material, design to resist effect of corrosion mostly in saltwater environment.

As we know that different countries in the world have their own gradation, specification of Steel and record of measurement for reinforcing bar or Rods. First remember that rebar is measured differentially in United States and Europe. while the United states, it uses the Imperial measurement system. Europe and most of rest of world uses the metric system and measured in mm.

In this article we briefly explain Rod weight per bundle: 12mm, 10mm, 8mm, 16mm, 20mm & 25mm steel bar and know about 12mm, 10mm, 8mm, 16mm, 20mm, 25mm & 32mm steel rod weight per bundle. This will help to viewers in better understanding and it is easy to choose the most suitable rebar or Rod weight per bundle you wanted according to requirement.

Let us first know about length of one piece of rod or steel bar, generally in India full length of one Steel bar or rod which are used in construction are available in 12 meter or approximately 40 feet long.

**Rod weight per bundle: 12mm, 10mm, 8mm, 16mm, 20mm & 25mm steel bar**

TMT Rebars or steel Rods are supplied in U bent or straight rods. Full length of the TMT Bars are 40 feet or approximately 12 meter long. In most cases civil engineers, contracts and others recommend to buy steel Rod/ TMT Bars in pieces, bundles or in tons or in quintal. The sizes also varies according to the structure of the building. For an example in main slab 10mm/12mm bars are required, for distribution it will be 8mm/10mm for beam it will be 16mm and 12mm according to the span length.

To calculate steel rod weight for 1 bundle, use the formula D^2L/162 × no. of rods in one bundle to figure out weight or mass for 1 bundle rod in kg, where D is the diameter of steel rod and L is the full length for 12 meter and numerical figure 162 is the thumb rule number which is derived and there are 20 pieces of 6mm, 10 pieces of 8mm, 7 pieces of 10mm, 5 pieces of 12mm, 3 pieces of 16mm, 2 pieces of 20mm and 1 pieces of 25mm steel Rod’s are in one bundle. For example 12mm steel rod weight per bundle = D^2L/162× no of pieces, (12×12×12) ÷ 162 × 5 = 53.33kgs, hence 53.33 kg is the weight of 12mm steel rod per bundle.

**Rod weight per bundle**

generally we use the formula D^2L/162 × no of pieces to calculate weight of rod or steel bar per bundle of full length of 12 meter in kg. Generally, 6mm steel rod weight around 53.33 kgs per bundle, 8mm is 47 kgs, 10mm is 53 kg, 12mm is 53.34 kgs, 16mm is 56.88 kgs, 20mm is 59.2 kgs, 25mm is 46.2 kgs, 32mm is 75.84 kgs and 40mm is 118.52 kgs. This is theoretical weight of rod per bundle.

**6mm steel rod weight per bundle**

Using the formula D^2L/162 × no of pieces to calculate rod weight per bundle, generally, 6mm steel rod weight around 53.33kg per bundle. There are approx 20 pieces of 6mm rods in a bundle. Mathematical calculation such as 6mm steel rod weight per bundle = D^2L/162, (6×6×12) ÷ 162 × 20 = 53.33 kgs/ bundle, hence 53.33 kg is the weight of 6mm steel rod per bundle.

**8mm steel rod weight per bundle**

Using the formula D^2L/162 × no of pieces to calculate rod weight per bundle, generally, 8mm steel rod weight around 47kg per bundle. There are approx 10 pieces of 8mm rods in a bundle. Mathematical calculation such as 8mm steel rod weight per bundle = D^2L/162, (8×8×12) ÷ 162 × 10 = 47 kgs/ bundle, hence 47 kg is the weight of 8mm steel rod per bundle.

**10mm steel rod weight per bundle**

Using the formula D^2L/162 × no of pieces to calculate rod weight per bundle, generally, 10mm steel rod weight around 53kg per bundle. There are approx 7 pieces of 10mm rods in a bundle. Mathematical calculation such as 10mm steel rod weight per bundle = D^2L/162, (10×10×12) ÷ 162 × 7 = 53 kgs/ bundle, hence 53 kg is the weight of 10mm steel rod per bundle.
