Aggregate

Equations

Type 1 Stone

Weight (tonnes) = Length (m) × Width (m) × Depth (m) × 2.4


Sharp Sand Equation

Weight (tonnes) = Length (m) × Width (m) × Depth (m) × 1.6


Building Sand Equation

Weight (tonnes) = Length (m) × Width (m) × Depth (m) × 1.5


Gravel Equation

Weight (tonnes) = Length (m) × Width (m) × Depth (m) × 1.7


Topsoil Equation

Weight (tonnes) = Length (m) × Width (m) × Depth (m) × 1.4

What is a

Aggregate Calculator

An aggregate calculator is a tool used to estimate the amount of aggregate material needed for a construction project. 


Aggregate materials include various types of stone, sand, gravel, and soil used in construction for creating foundations, roads, pathways, and other structures.

How to use the 

Aggregate Calculator

Enter Dimensions: Input the length, width, and depth of the area to be covered.


Select Material: Choose the type of aggregate material from the dropdown or selection box.


Calculate: Click the calculate button to compute the volume, area, and weight of the material needed.


Review Results: The calculator will display the required amount of material in terms of area and weight.

Purpose of an Aggregate Calculator


  1. Estimate Material Quantity: It helps in calculating the quantity of material required based on the dimensions of the area to be covered.

  2. Budget Planning: By knowing the amount of material needed, project planners can estimate costs and budget accordingly.

  3. Avoid Wastage: It ensures that the right amount of material is ordered, avoiding over-ordering or under-ordering.

  4. Project Planning: Assists in planning the logistics of material delivery and storage.


Components of an Aggregate Calculator


Input Fields:

  1. Length: The length of the area to be covered in meters or feet.

  2. Width: The width of the area to be covered in meters or feet.

  3. Depth: The depth or thickness of the material to be laid in meters or feet.

Material Selection:

A dropdown or selection box to choose the type of aggregate material (e.g., Type 1 Stone, Sharp Sand, Building Sand, Gravel, Topsoil).


Density Values:

Predefined density values for each type of material, usually in tonnes per cubic meter or pounds per cubic foot.


Calculation Outputs:

  1. Volume: The volume of material needed, calculated as Length × Width × Depth.

  2. Area: The area to be covered, calculated as Length × Width.

  3. Weight: The weight of the material required, calculated as Volume × Density.
