### What is Modular Ratio? Modular Ratio in RCC(Reinforced Cement Concrete)

Modular Ratio is defined as the Ratio between Modulus of Elasticity of Steel and Modulus of Elasticity of Concrete. This is because, a Reinforced Concrete is made up of Both Steel and Concrete. In this case, Steel is a Tension member and Concrete is a Compression Member. When Load is applied, a Rcc member seem to carry same load but strain produced in it is different. As per IS456:2000

3 Respones to "What is Modular Ratio? Modular Ratio in RCC(Reinforced Cement Concrete)"modular ratio is a ratio of two different materials of elastic moduli.so it has no units.But, according to is456:2000 the formula is m=280/(3fcbc).the units for fcbc is N/mm^2..from this m get the units mm^2/N.. right??

No,m has no unit because 280/3 comes out by using elastic modulii in steel(2000MPa or N/mm2)& max allowable strain in concrete(unitless quantity).that's why 280/3 has unit of N/mm2 which will cancel out by unit of elasticity of concrete . Finally m is constant value no unit.
