#### Total Concrete Block required 909

Sr No. Material Unit
1 Blocks 909
2 Cement 5 Bags
3 Sand 1.43 ton

## Concrete Block calculation

#### Step 1 :

Add 15% more for wastage, Non - uniform thickness of mortar joins

Add 25% more for Dry Volume

#### Amount of Cement

##### $\frac{\mathrm{Cement}}{\mathrm{Sum of Ratio}}×\mathrm{Qauntity Of Mortar}$
1 Bag of Cement = 0.035 m3

#### Amount of Sand Required

##### $\frac{\mathrm{Sand}}{\mathrm{Sum of Ratio}}×\mathrm{Qauntity Of Mortar}$
By Considering dry loose bulk density of sand 1550 kg/m3

## What is concrete blocks calculation?

A concrete block is primarily used as a building material in the construction of walls. It is sometimes called a concrete Block unit (CMU). A concrete block is one of several precast concrete products used in construction.

Concrete blocks can be solid or hollow with two or three cores or voids. Concert blocks are lightweight generally concrete blocks are light and common in various sizes a standard concert block is 600mm x 250mm x 150mm is equivalent to by about 8 red concrete-block, the weight of one single block is about 14kg where is 8 red concrete-block is 36kg that is more than double.

##### Concrete Block Calculation

Where,
• m3(Cubic meter) and ft3(Cubic feet) is a total area.
• Here 1:5 ratio so 1 is part of cement and 5 is a part of sand 6 is total ofcement and sand
• 0.002 is volume of blocks with cement and sand.
• 0.0015 Volume of block without cement and sand Answer we get is with water so we get mortar.
• 0.035 is volume of one cement bag.
• 1550 is volume conversion m3 to kg.
• Length and breadth in meter/cm.

Note:
1 m3 = 35.3147 ft3

## What are the important concrete block?

It is used in high rise building to reduce structural load. Concrete blocks are easy to handle compare to red Concrete-Block, they are larger in dimension and superior in quality and most importantly save in time and cost.
