Online Calculator for calculating building blocks

Select the dimensions of the building block. If the required dimensions are not in the list, you can enter your own dimensions.
The units of measurement are millimeters.
Size (Length*Width*Height) or block type
mm Building block
The perimeter of the building is the sum of the length of all the walls required for calculation. The example shows a perimeter of 30 meters, for a house of 7 * 8 meters (7+7+8+8=30).
Units of measurement are meters.
Total length of all walls (perimeter)
If the height of the walls is different, you must specify the average height (the sum of the height of all walls divided by the number of walls). For example, if the height of two walls is 350 centimeters, and the other two are 250 centimeters each, you must specify 300 centimeters ((350+250)/2=300).
The units of measurement are centimeters.
The height of the walls at the corners
The thickness of the walls is indicated without taking into account the insulation and cladding materials, and most often depends on the height of the building, the necessary heat-saving characteristics and the strength of the material.
Half a block = block width,
1 = block length,
1.5 = width+block length,
2 = two block lengths.
Wall thickness

The thickness of the mortar depends on the geometry of the building blocks - the smoother the geometric dimensions, the smaller the thickness of the mortar layer.
The units of measurement are millimeters.

Information on the purpose of the calculator

Online calculator of building blocks is designed to perform calculations of building materials necessary for the construction of walls of houses, garages, utility rooms and other premises. The calculations can take into account the dimensions of the gables of the building, door and window openings, as well as related materials, such as mortar and masonry mesh. Be careful when filling in the data, pay special attention to the units of measurement.

Technologies do not stand still, including construction. For the construction of walls, brick has replaced wood, and today its place is increasingly occupied by building blocks obtained artificially, and depending on the raw materials used, they may have different characteristics.

Building blocks are popular in the construction of low-rise buildings and walls of monolithic frame buildings. They can not only be used to build exterior walls, but also used for internal partitions and interior walls. Concrete blocks are also suitable for the manufacture of prefabricated foundations for light buildings.

The advantages of building blocks are obvious. With their help, you can build a building in a short time without using special equipment. They have good thermal insulation and the necessary strength. Therefore, the funds spent on insulation will be significantly lower than in brick construction. And if we compare building blocks with wooden log cabins, then this is not only less additional funds and work, but also a higher durability of the building.

Blocks do not need as strong a vapor barrier as, for example, a tree. Considering their size and lightness, even the foundation for such a house will cost much cheaper compared to brick and reinforced concrete. The use of special masonry glue increases the thermal insulation of the walls, and makes them more attractive in appearance.

Building blocks can be divided into two types:

Artificial building blocks include: aerated concrete, foam concrete, expanded clay concrete, polystyrene concrete, sawdust concrete and many others. Each type is used depending on the necessary qualities, and has both a number of advantages and a number of disadvantages. One type has good thermal insulation performance, but they are somewhat inferior in strength (if you compare, for example, aerated concrete and expanded clay concrete). In any case, buildings constructed using building blocks require less time for the construction of turnkey houses, compared with the same wooden log cabins, which take a long time to finally dry out and settle. And only after that you can start the final finishing of the room.

During the construction of blocks, the interior decoration of the premises can be carried out immediately after the completion of construction.

By design features , building blocks are distinguished by:

  1. Structural
  2. They are used for the construction of load-bearing walls of buildings. They have high strength, but also high thermal conductivity and high weight. In this regard, during the construction of residential premises, additional insulation is required.
  3. Structural and thermal insulation
  4. They are used for the construction of load-bearing walls of low-rise buildings. They have average characteristics, both in strength and thermal insulation qualities. Ideal for residential premises with seasonal accommodation.
  5. Thermal insulation
  6. They are used for the construction of only self-supporting walls, such as internal partitions and walls of frame buildings, as well as for insulation of load-bearing walls. They have low thermal conductivity, low weight, but also low strength.
Unfortunately, at the moment there is no ideal material that has high indicators of all the necessary characteristics at once, such as low thermal conductivity, high strength, low weight and cost. And in each specific case, it is necessary to choose exactly the material that is most suitable for the planned construction, taking into account the necessary requirements.

The cost of finished walls is approximately equal to 1/3 of the cost of the entire building.

The following is a complete list of calculations performed with a brief description of each item.

General information on the results of calculations

In order to calculate blocks for partitions, you need to start a new calculation and specify the length of only all partitions, the thickness of the walls in half the block, as well as other necessary parameters.
