Have you been told** “Add some water, the concrete looks very hard”?**

Is this right? Adding more water (** Water Cement Ratio**) at the site level to increase the concrete workability ???

Absolutely Not…

Most of the structural buildings comprise 75% of brickwork (at least in Asian countries).

So it is essential to learn the **brickwork calculation**,

Before beginning the calculation, be familiar with the types of brick bonds that we covered in the previous post.

In this post, we are going to explain you, How to Calculate Cement, Sand Quantity for Plastering?

Please note, before using the calculator embedded in this post understand the plastering cement mortar calculation concept.

We have already discussed Nominal Mix of Concrete and Mix Proportions.

If you have missed that please go ahead and read that. We will wait for you.

It’s time for some calculations.

FSI stands for **Floor Space Index** also known as Floor Area Ratio (FAR).

FSI means the ratio between the area of a covered floor (Built up Area) to the area of that plot (land) on which a building stands.

Do you think it’s that simple formula (D^{2} / 162.2) for steel weight calculation of a bar?

Nope…

It’s hard to find the exact weight of steel bars according to its area, it is advisable to refer the manufacturer’s chart to calculate the weight of the steel bar.

If you can’t find the details, then the below steel bar weight calculation formulas are useful for site level execution.

Let say you need to calculate the reinforcement for a circular slab of 2 Metre diameter with spacing 200 mm c/c and clear cover as 25 mm.

Unlike other RCC members, this one is different since the rod length will differ according to the diameter of the circle.

Normally, We calculate the tile flooring area in order to find the required number of the tiles for a given room. Assuming that situation, we have explained this post with an example.

Calculating the concrete volume of an isolated footing seems like hectic.

We have explained the process (with diagram) step by step using this simple trapezoidal footing formula. Also embedded an easy to use trapezoidal volume calculator.
