Today we are going to discuss the rate analysis of concrete along with example calculation. Before that, you must understand what are the aspects involved in rate analysis for a work.

We may get confused while doing the Rate analysis because if we did mistake in the budget then it will impact on our profit and there is a chance to lose the money.

The rate analysis is not an easy thing, we have to squeeze our mind to get the accuracy. Although it is simple if we do the estimation in an appropriate way.

In an earlier post, we had discussed the Rate analysis of brickwork.

Letâ€™s do the **Rate analysis of concrete for 1 Cum (M15)**.

# Rate Analysis of Concrete

The following things should be considered while Rate analysing.

- Required material with wastage.
- Required manpower
- Power consumption
- Water consumption
- Tools and equipment
- Contingencies
- Overhead & Profit

### Material Estimation

As above said first, we have to calculate the required material including wastages.

RThe ratioof M15 – 1:2:4

**Cement = (1 x 1.54)/(7) = 0.22 x 28.8 = 6.33 Bags**

**Sand = 0.22 x 2 = 0.44 Cum**

**Coarse Aggregates = 0.22 x 4 = 0.88 Cum**

To know the detailed explanation How to calculate the material quantity for Concrete.

### Manpower requirement

The approx manpower requirement has listed below for 1 Cum of concrete in terms of days.

Mason – 0.3 Days

Male Coolie – 1 Day

Female Coolie – 1 Day

Waterman – 0.1 Days

We had covered the crucial task and we shall add a certain percentage for water, power consumption, etc.,
