How To Calculate The Cement and Sand For Tiles Fixing 50ft²
In this article, I explain how to calculate the cement in tiles fixing on 50sq.ft area and also explain the benefit of tiles purpose of tiles fixing how much use the thickness of cement using in floor tiles and wall tiles.
what is the purpose of tiles?
The basic purpose of tile is to cover the floor and wall and easy to fix it. The different types are used in home and all construction work and also use in road work footpath park area etc. some area are using ceramic tiles marble tiles glass tile cement tiles Gary nite tile limestone tile etc. all tiles are used different purpose.
Now we calculate the cement for fixing tiles 50ft
Work for wall
Tile fixing for wall the thickness of cement up to 1inch=1/12=0.083ft
Work for floor
Tile fixing for floor the thickness of cement up to 1.5inch=1.5/12=0.125ft
Now we have the area of room or hall =50ft²
Now we find Work for floor
we find the volume of room or hall
volume of wet mortar =area of room or hall × thickness of cement
Volume of wet mortar= 50×0.125=6.25ft³
Now we convert volume wet to dry
We know the wet volume of any mortar if we convert to dry volume this will be increased by 33%. Multiply the wet volume to 1.33 of the cofactor of dry volume
Dry volume of Mortar= 6.25×1.33=8.312ft³
How To Calculate The Cement For Tiles Fixing 50ft²
we use the cement ratio of mortar using in tiles 1:2
volume of cement = cement ratio/sum of ratio × dry volume of mortar
volume of cement = 1/3×8.312=2.77ft³
we know the 20% extra cement used for adhesive.
so total volume of cement
Total volume of cement =2.77+0.554=3.324ft³
volume of one bag cement =1.25ft³
The bag of cement=volume of dry cement/volume of one bag
The bag of cement=3.324/1.25=2.659 bag= 3bags
The same step is used to find the volume for the wall but use the thickness of cement 01 inches.
Now calculate the volume of sand
volume of sand=ratio of sand/sum of ratio×dry volume of mortar
volume of sand=2/3×8.31=5.54ft³
