Kilopound Per Square Foot (abbreviations: ksf, or kips/ft2): is a British (Imperial) and American pressure unit which is directly related to the ksi pressure unit by a factor of 144 (1 sq ft = 12 in x 12 in = 144 sq in). Where, 1 kilopound per square foot equals 47.8803 kilopascals.

Tonne Per Meter Cube (abbreviations: t/m2, or tpm2): is the SI derived unit of pressure used to quantify internal pressure, stress, Young's modulus and ultimate tensile strength interms of tonne per meter cube.

How to Convert Kilopounds Per Square Feet to Tonnes Per Meters Cube

Example: How many tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 39.93 kilopounds per square feet?


1 kilopounds per square feet = 4.78803 tonnes per meters cube

39.93 kilopounds per square feet = Y tonnes per meters cube

Assuming Y is the answer, and by criss-cross principle;

Y equals 39.93 times 4.78803 over 1

(i.e.) Y = 39.93 * 4.78803 / 1 = 191.1860379 tonnes per meters cube

Answer is: 191.1860379 tonnes per meters cube are equivalent to 39.93 kilopounds per square feet.
