To calculate the required number of cubic meters of foam blocks, and they are sold exactly cubic meters and value in all points of sale indicated in the unit of measure, calculate the length of all walls, multiply the width and the height of the structure.
Separately calculate the length, height and width of doors, Windows, fold all the results obtained, subtract from the total number of designed walls. The result, divide by the volume of one block, that is, the length multiplied by the height and width. To the resulting figure add 20% that will go to battle when unloading and are at a loss when laying, if the foam block is cut incorrectly when resizing. The initial result of the calculation will be the number of cubic metres of blocks required for the construction of your building.
If you do well the clutch, the original multiply the result by two.
To calculate the number of blocks in the pieces, count how many blocks will be in the masonry of a series. To do this, fold the length of all walls of the structure, divide by the length of the foam blocks. Width count based on the fact that you will do the masonry from a single foam block, i.e. the width of the masonry is equal to the width of one block.
Next, calculate the required number of ranks, of which you are going to put the height of the building. For example, a standard height single-storey house is 15 rows of concrete blocks; if you will produce the binding of two rows of timber, enough to put 14 rows of blocks and the top 2 rows of spalnico. Multiply the height obtained in 4 (if inside the building will be load bearing wall, then multiply by 5) divide by the height of the block. Is the number of blocks you'll need to put the height. Multiply by the units needed per length, and get the desired result. If you do not take away from the calculated number of Windows and doors, then add 20% to the desired number is not necessary.
