I need to find out how many pieces of size 950mm * 140mm * 18mm I can create from 20 cubic meters. How do I calculate this? TIA

Re: Cubic Meter Calculation
your figures 950mm x 140mm x 18 mm = 2,394,000 cubic mm
it might be easier to convert the mm in centimeters
95cm x 14cm x 1.8 cm = 2394 cubic centimeters
2394 cubic centimeters is 0.002394 of a cubic meter
20 / 0.002394 = 83542.1288Last edited by Sandra; 11152007, 11:22 AM.

20 / 0.002394 = 8354.2
Also, abdlah, it's not clear from your question whether you are molding these pieces from a fluid substance, or whether you are cutting them out of a block of solid material.
If you're cutting them out of a solid block, then you may not be able to avoid wasting a certain amount of material if each dimension (length, width, height) is not an exact multiple of your individual pieces. This would give you fewer pieces than calculated above.

10 000 000 cm³ (please no confusing me with exponents :P. thanks)
But you have one too many, 1 000 000 cm³

Re: Cubic Meter Calculation
can you advise if asteel pipe 457 mm od x 12.7 mm wall x 12.0 metres  ie 139 KG / metre will be calculated as dead weight or cubic weight. And if cubic weight  what id the factror considering i will be paying for the freight in revenue mt

This is about 666 kg/m³
I don't know about storage. For shipping, different methods use different "trip points" for switching between volume and weight charges. Air is pretty standard at 167 kg/m³, truck and sea are less standard but often 333 kg/m³ and 1000 kg/m³. The "cube weight" would be the volume from above multiplied by that "trip point" density. Using the numbers above, air and truck would be weight, sea would be cubeweight. For storage, you'll have to ask.
Since pipe doesn't completely fill the volume calculated above, for multiple pieces, there may be a bit of a volume reduction depending on how the pieces pack together, maybe 10% in a large shipment.
