Bulking Factor

These are the weights of Raw Materials for Construction and Bulking Factors from Australian Standards for Construction which include density.

Bulking Factors for Raw Materials

  1. BASALT – 2.4 Kilograms to 3.1 Kilograms per Cubic Metre (Bulking Factor – 75% to 80% depending on moisture content).
  2. CLAY – 1.8 Kilograms to 2.6 Kilograms per Cubic Metre (Bulking Factor – 20% to 40% depending on moisture content).
  3. DOLOMITE – 2.8 Kilograms per Cubic Metre (Bulking Factor – 50% to 60% depending on moisture content).
  4. SAND / DRY – 1.6 Kilograms per Cubic Metre (Bulking Factor – 75% to 80% depending on moisture content).
  5. SANDSTONE – 2.1 Kilograms per Cubic Metre to 2.4 Kilograms per Cubic Metre (Bulking Factor – 75% to 80% depending on moisture content).

This calculator will show you Excavation Quantities & Bulking Factor for all the different hundreds of materials for construction.
