CONCRETE CALCULATOR FORMULA: (LENGTH X WIDTH X DEPTH) DIVIDED BY 27 =#
OF CUBIC YARDS
EXAMPLE: 18 FEET LONG,
18 FEET WIDE, 6 INCHES DEEP THIS WOULD BE: (18 X 18 X .5)/27 = 6
To use the Concrete Volume Calculator,
simply enter the width, length, and thickness of
your pour, click on whether you are measuring
the thickness in feet or inches, then click on
the Calculate button. The calculator will
estimate the number of cubic yards of concrete
that will be required.
To use the Block Wall Calculator,
simply enter the height and length of the
wall, click on whether you are filling an
8-inch or 12-inch wall, then click on the
Calculate button. The calculator will
estimate the number of blocks that will be
required. Note that this is an estimate.
There is significant variation in fill space
among different blocks.
To use the Concrete Column Calculator, simply enter the height and diameter of the column, and click on the Calculate button. The calculator will display the number of cubic yards required.
BLOCK WALL 8" Block: 9(L) x 9.75(H) = 98.5 Blocks Needed 12" Block: 10.64(L) x 9(H) = 72.0 Blocks Needed
BRICK Approx. 7 Bag of Mortar per 1000 Brick Approx. 1 Ton Sand per 1000 Brick Figure 7 Brick per Sq. Ft. (Allows for Waste) 4.625 Courses Brick per foot of Wall Height 5 Brick per Sq.Ft. for Pavers, Hearths
CONCRETE Small batch formula 3-2-1 mix = 3 shovels of gravel, 2 shovels of sand, 1 shovel of cement, water to desired consistency
WALLTIES 1 per every 10 Brick (100 Wall Ties per 1000 Brick)
