• weight of one yard of concrete

In general, 1 yard of concrete weighs about 4050 pounds. 1 cubic yard of concrete equals 27 cubic feet.

4050 lbs divided by 27 cubic feet = 150 lbs. per cubic foot.

So 1 cubic yard of concrete weighs 150 pounds per cubic foot. If you break down the weight of the individual aggregates (cement, stone, and sand) in the concrete, you get the following weights:

517 pounds of cement /27 = 19 lbs per cubic foot

1560 pounds of sand /27 = 58 lbs per cubic foot

1600 pounds of stone /27 = 59 lbs per cubic foot

That equals 136 lbs per cubic foot for the dry aggregates. Above I said a cubic yard of concrete weighs 150 lbs per cubic foot, so the 14 lbs per cubic foot difference would be the water in the mix.

Keep in mind these “weights” are just a general description of a 3000 psi concrete mixture. Moisture content in the aggregates does play a part in figuring the overall weight also. But this should give you a basic idea of individual weight per cubic foot.
