# How many Bags of Cement per SQM of Wall Construction

You will be able to know how many bags of cement per SQM of wall construction are necessary, depending on the material, whether they are CINDER BLOCKSBRICKS, floor, or depending on the type of concrete.

Different dosages have been used, depending on the type of material, wall thickness and floor characteristics. There are included the losses or waste of each material, when calculatin how many bags of cement per SQM of wall construction

## How many Bags of Cement per SQM of Block Interior Wall

Dosages of 1:4:1, 1:4:2, and 1:5:2 with masonry cement are used.

## How many Bags of Cement per SQM of Block Exterior Wall

Dosages of 1:4:2 and 1:5:2 with masonry cement are used.

## How many Bags of Cement per SQM of Brick Wall

Dosages of 1:8:3, 1:5:2, 1:5:1 and 1:4:1 with masonry cement are used.

## How many Bags of Cement per SQM of Stone Wall

The dosage of 1:4:1 with masonry cement is used.

## Nomenclature

• Rb’k: Resistance(R) of the Concrete(b) to compression(‘) characteristic(k).
• Masonry Cement: Portland Pozzolanic Cement.
• P-350 Cement: Portland Cement for structural elements.

You can choose between many HOUSE PLANS with measurements and facades, and later, make your own CALCULATIONS OF MATERIALS.

## Some Explanations

The quantity of cement required for a structural or architectural element cannot be determined without knowing the following:

• Thickness of the Element (slabs, walls, foundations): The thickness will affect the amount of cement required. A thicker element will require more cement than a thinner one.
• Size of the Element (slabs, walls, foundations): The size of the element will also affect the amount of cement required. A larger element will require more cement than a smaller one.
• Proportions of Materials: The proportions of materials in the concrete or mortar mix will also affect the amount of cement required. For example, a mix with a higher proportion of sand will require less cement than a mix with a higher proportion of gravel.
• Durability: The desired durability of an element will also affect the amount of cement required. A more durable element will require more cement than a less durable one.

It is best to consult with a builder to determine the exact amount of cement required. However, I can give you an idea of how many cement bags you might need based on my own experience.
