Online calculator for calculating the amount of foam block

The units of measurement are millimeters. Block length mm Foam block
The units of measurement are millimeters. Block width mm
The units of measurement are millimeters. Block height mm
The weight of 1 cubic meter of material.
Units of measurement - kilogram per cubic meter.
Density (D)
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 blocks themselves.
Half block = block width,
1 = block length,
1.5 = width+block length,
2 = two block lengths.
Wall thickness
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.

Information on the purpose of the calculator

The online calculator of foam blocks is designed to calculate the number and parameters of foam concrete blocks for the construction of walls of residential buildings and non-residential premises, as well as other structures, taking into account pediments, window and door openings. Calculation of the amount of related materials, such as the amount of sand-cement mortar, masonry mesh and the cost of materials.

Foam concrete blocks are one of the types of cellular concrete, which, in addition to water, cement and sand, includes a chemical foaming agent. It is thanks to the foaming agent that this material turns out to be light and has sufficient strength to withstand external loads. The structure of concrete itself, as well as in gas blocks, is cellular, containing many closed air pores that are evenly distributed throughout the volume.

Foam concrete is quite a popular building material, and is used in all major types of construction, such as:

  1. Block construction of walls
  2. Monolithic fill
  3. Use as a heat and sound insulation material

The strength of such concrete depends on its density, the higher the density, the higher the strength. But this rule only works if all the norms are observed in the production process. The quality of the material depends on the type of production. The production process is quite simple, which is why this material has gained high fame and popularity even in small settlements. But in this case it was a big disadvantage, since the possibility of production in "garage" conditions has the worst effect on quality.

At large enterprises, special foam generators and high-pressure autoclave chambers are used, in which foam concrete gains its strength, maintaining a uniform distribution of air pores throughout the volume. Unfortunately, many small enterprises produce foam concrete blocks without such chambers, as well as neglect many other rules (not accurate calculation of raw materials, small amount of cement, cheap foaming agents, violation of drying modes, homemade equipment). In this regard, the resulting concrete has a clearly uneven density, which is why it does not meet the accepted standards and declared characteristics. Over time, such foam blocks give cracks of various sizes, delaminate and crumble.

Attempts to save on building materials lead to partial (and sometimes complete) destruction of the integrity of the structure after a few years.

The mechanical strength of foam concrete, due to its porous structure, is quite small compared to conventional concrete. In this regard, the use of this material is possible only in walls that do not carry significant loads. As well as the mandatory presence of reinforcing belts above the upper rows, even when installing wooden floors.

Despite this, foam concrete has a number of significant advantages compared to many other types of heavy concrete:

Purchase foam blocks only at large enterprises that have a full production cycle that meets all standards, as well as having certificates.

General information on the results of calculations

To calculate the 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 of the block, as well as other necessary parameters.
