What is the concrete block?

Concrete block is the concrete materials used in buildings for construction. concrete block is the standard size. basically two methods for calculating the blocks in the wall.How To Calculate The Block Quantity In Wall

By Volume Method 

By Area Method

1-Voulme Method

In this method, we will calculate the number of blocks with the volume of the wall and the volume of the block. we calculate the number of blocks with the help of the given data

Given Data

length of the wall=10ft

Height of the wall=10ft

The thickness of the wall= 8inch =0.67ft    (8-inch thickness because the thickness of the block is also 8inch)

The volume of the wall=L x H x THK

The volume of the wall= 10 x 10 x 0.67 =67ft³

The volume of the block

length of the block=16 inch

Height of the block=8inch

The thickness of the block=8inch

The volume of the block= L x H x Thk

The volume of the block = 16 x 8 x 8 =0.59ft³    Without motor

The motor is left side and the top side is equal to =1inch

The volume of the block with motor =(16+1) x (8+1) x 8 = 0.70ft³ 

Now the volume of the window 

Length of the window = 3ft

Height of the window = 3ft

The thickness of the window =0.67ft

The volume of the window =L x H x Thk

The volume of the window = 3 x 3 x 0.67 =6.03ft³

The total volume of the wall for calculation block   = Volume of the wall  – The volume of the window

The total volume of the wall for the calculation block   = 67 – 6.02 =60.98ft³ 

NOW 

Quantity of the block = Total volume of the wall ÷ volume of the block

Quantity of the block = 60.98 / 0.70  =87.11=88 Numbers

Also, consider the 5 % waste Quantity

Total Quantity of the block = 88/ 100 x 5 =4.35

Total Quantity of the block = 88+4.35=92.35=93 Numbers

By Area Method

Area of the wall 

length of the wall=10ft

Height of the wall=10ft

Area of the wall =L x H

Area of the wall  10 x 10 =100 ft²

Area of the Block without motor

length of the block=16 inch

Height of the block=8inch

Area of the Block =16 x 8 =128inch²

Area of the block with motor

length of the block=16 inch

Height of the block=8inch

Allowance motor Thickness = 1 inch

Area of the block with motor= 16+1 x 8+1 =153inch²=153/12×12= 1.062ft²

Area of the window

Length of the window = 3ft

Height of the window = 3ft

Area of the Window = L x H

Area of the Window = 3 x 3 =9ft²

Total Area of the wall for calculation 

Total Area of the wall for calculation = Area of the wall – Area of the window

Total Area of the wall for calculation = 100 – 6 =94 ft²

Quantity of the block 

Quantity of the block = Total Area of the wall ÷ Area of the block

Quantity of the block = 94 / 1.062

Quantity of the block = 88.51 =89 Numbers
