Hello visitors! In this blog post we will see how to calculate number of concrete blocks Per Square Meter with a given size of block, some requirements and considerations in the wall.

# How to Calculate Number of Concrete Blocks Per Square Meter?

To calculate number of concrete blocks per square meter, we will go through the following calculation. In this calculation we have discussed two cases, first calculation is without mortar and second calculation is with mortar, we are using the standard block size 16 inch × 8 inch × 8 inch or 400 mm ×  200 mm ×  200 mm.

## 1. Calculate Number of Concrete Blocks Per Square Meter (Without Mortar)

Here, we are going to see the calculation to find the number of concrete blocks per square meter (without mortar). This calculation is basically used to know the area required to stone the blocks.

### Requirements and considerations

We have the following requirements and considerations
Area of block work= 1 square meter
Size of block= 16 inch × 8 inch × 8 inch
Thickness of Wall= 8 inch (same as thickness of block)
Mortar thickness (12 mm), generally 10 to 15 mm

### Calculate Face Area of the Wall

Total Area of the Block Work
Total area of block work
= 1 square meter
= 10.764 square feet

### Calculate Face Area of Block

Face area or covering area of a block is calculated with mortar and without mortar.

Face Area of a Single Block Without Mortar
= Length of Block × Height of Block
= 16 inch × 8 inch
= 128 square inch or 0.889 square feet

Face Area of a Single Block With Mortar
= (Length of Block + Thickness of Mortar) × (Height of Block + Thickness of Mortar)
= (16 inch + 12 mm) × (8 inch + 12 mm)
= (406.4 mm + 12 mm) × (203.2 mm + 12 mm)
= 418.4 mm × 215.2 mm
= 90040 mm² or 0.9692 square feet.

### Total Number of Blocks Per Square Meter

Total number of blocks per square meter
= Total Area of Block Work in Square Feet/ Face Area of a Single Block Without Mortar
= 10.764 square feet/0.889 square feet
= 12.1 Blocks, (Say 12 Blocks).
So, the total number of blocks in 1 square meter would be 12 Blocks.

### Final Result

Total number of concrete blocks required in 1 square meter without mortar is 12 Nos without any wastage.

Note: This calculation is to understand the concrete block storage mainly.

## 2. Calculate Number of Concrete Blocks Per Square Meter (With Mortar)

Here, we are going to see the calculation to find the number of blocks per square meter (with mortar). This calculation is basically used to know the number of blocks required in a wall.

### Requirements and considerations

We have the following requirements and considerations
Area of block work= 1 square meter
Size of block= 16 inch × 8 inch × 8 inch
Thickness of Wall= 8 inch (same as thickness of block)
Mortar thickness (12 mm), generally 10 to 15 mm

### Total Number of Blocks Per Square Meter

Total number of blocks per square meter
= Total Area of Block Work in Square Feet/ Face Area of a Single Block With Mortar
= 10.764 square feet/0.9692 square feet
= 11.1 Blocks, (Say 11 Blocks).
So, the total number of blocks in 1 square meter wall would be 11 Blocks.

### Final Result

Total number of concrete blocks required in 1 square meter wall with mortar is 11 Nos without any wastage.

Note: This calculation is to understand the concrete block masonry work mainly.
